Matwork classes

Matwork classes can benefit people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels.  This page has information about matwork classes including prices, timetable, venue information and online booking (see below). Group classes have a maximum of 10 people (8 for postnatal classes) to ensure everyone gets individual support when needed. I also offer 121 and private group sessions.  Group matwork classes are taught in the Dance Studio at St Dunstan's Jubilee Ground - located in Catford Town Centre with free parking and secure cycle storage (scroll down for map and directions).

  • 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/restorative classes are suitable for those who are new to Pilates or who are returning to exercise after illness or injury
  • Mixed Ability classes are suitable for people who are reasonably fit and active, and for those with some previous experience of Pilates.
  • Intermediate classes are suitable for people who are injury free or who have been practicing Pilates for at least a year.
  • Postnatal classes are suitable from 6 - 12 weeks postpartum with doctor sign off.  A maximum of 8 people per class.
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 a private group or 1-2-1 session before joining a matwork class.  If in doubt, please get in touch to discuss which option is best for you.

Classes are held in the Dance Studio.  There is free parking and secure cycle storage available.

Enter the Jubilee Grounds via the Canadian Avenue Entrance. Tell the gatekeeper that you are attending Catford Pilates.  If walking: follow the footpath beside the driveway all the way in front of the main building.  Turn right at the end of the building and then right again down a long external corridor to enter the building and follow the signs for the reception desk and dance studio. If driving or cycling: follow the driveway all the way around behind the buildings.  From the carpark follow the directions above to find the reception desk.
