Our Pilates classes and style
We offer mat and Reformer classes for all levels as well as specialist classes for Back Care and Better Bones.
There are many forms and variations of Joseph Pilates contrology exercises, but most teaching will fall into either ‘classical’ or ‘contemporary’ groups. The ‘classical’ method closely follows the original Joseph Pilates regime with exercises being performed in a particular order in every class.

Contemporary teaching includes Joseph Pilates’ classical exercises and incorporates bio-mechanical principles, fascia principles, physiotherapy and other rehabilitation modalities and applies them to all physical movement. This is why this method works particularly well for sports people and rehabilitation. Our teaching style allows greater flexibility to suit client’s individual needs and 21st century lifestyles.
Our Pilates teachers have all been professionally trained to the highest standards from teaching establishments such as Body Control Pilates and the Pilates Foundation.
Pure Moves teachers have backgrounds in both ‘classical’ and ‘contemporary’ training and their expert knowledge of Joseph Pilates exercises will help you get the very best from every class that you attend.
We have excellent Pilates teachers who are all fully qualified and are committed to continuing professional development. Read more about them here.
