Matwork classes

Matwork classes can benefit people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels.  I teach matwork classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Ladywell Arena - places are limited to 7 people per class.  This page has information about matwork classes including prices, timetable, venue information and how to book.  For information on daytime matwork classes see small group sessions.

  • Matwork classes

I adapt the level of difficulty and type of exercises to suit the needs of the people in each group, but as a guide: 

  • Beginners classes are suitable for those who are new to Pilates or who prefer a more gentle approach to movement.
  • Beginners and Improvers classes are suitable for people who are reasonably fit and active, and for those with some previous experience of Pilates.
Please note that you may need to check with your doctor before coming to class if you:
  • have a health condition
  • are returning to exercise after illness or injury.
It may be more appropriate for you to attend small group classes or 1-2-1 sessions before joining a matwork class.  If in doubt, please get in touch to discuss which option is best for you.  I do not currently offer pre or post natal matwork classes.

Matwork classes can be booked up to six weeks in advance.  Prices vary depending on the number of classes booked in each six week period:

  • £11 per class if you book 3 or 4 classes
  • £10 per class if you book 5, 6 or more classes
You can swap to another class so long as you do so at least 24 hours in advance.  Classes can not be carried over from one six week period to another.  Cancellations less than 24 hours in advance will be charged at full price.

Matwork classes are held at Ladywell Arena on Silvermere Road, SE6 4QX.  Classes are held in the club rooms.

There are changing facilities on site - these are in the main building near the Fusion reception desk. You can bring your bags etc with you to the class.

At the Arena, enter through the main gate and turn right.  Walk past reception (where the changing facilities are located) to the building at the end with glass doors facing the running track. Turn right at the end of the building and walk down towards the side entrance. 

Please note that parking near the Arena is residents only or pay and display.
