5) CLASSES & 1-2-1 SESSIONS - PILATES & YOGA
Pilates - Pilates is a form of exercise which concentrates on strengthening the body with an emphasis on core strength. This helps to improve general fitness and overall well-being. Similar in some ways to Yoga, Pilates concentrates on posture, balance and flexibility, there is also a focus on the mind-body connection, whilst doing the exercises your mind needs to be constantly aware of your breathing and the way the body moves.
I have been teaching Pilates for over ten years now and have found it to be the perfect accompaniment for sports, injury prevention and rehabilitation with just one or two Pilates classes a week I have seen people completely change the way they move and hold their body and have seen people recover from some serious injuries such as chronic back pain.
3) SPORTS THERAPY - TREATMENT FOR SPORTS AND COMMON INJURIES
Sports Therapy: Utilising the principles of sport sciences, sports therapy uses various techniques, such as sports massage, STR’s, MET’s, joint mobilisations, ultrasound and exercise prescription to help fix and fully rehabilitate those with injuries. As well as helping you to recover from injury, a sports therapist will also use their skills to optimise your performance and support you in your sporting/exercise endeavours.
The Society of Sports Therapists defines a sports therapist as a healthcare professional who has the knowledge, skills and ability to do the following:
Utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise performance
Provide immediate care of injuries
Offer basic life support in a recreational, training and/or competitive environment
Provide sport and remedial massage in a sport and exercise context
Plan and implement appropriate rehabilitation programmes.
A sports therapist should also be qualified to refer patients to other medical specialists as and when required.
PRICE £45 (I will always take the time to find and understand the root of your problem and thoroughly explain it to you. To that end, if it’s needed I will create with you an individualized treatment plan including continued care and any rehabilitation exercises or protocols aimed at achieving the functional goals we set together.

Yoga - Yoga is a Hindu spiritual and aesthetic discipline, a part of which, including breathe control, simple meditation and the adoption of specific bodily postures, it is widely practised for health and relaxation.
I have been teaching Yoga for over eight years now and have found it to be another great accompaniment for sports especially in terms of flexibility although some care should be taken if you are suffering from any pre-existing conditions such as chronic back pain. It also is tremendous for helping with your mental state which is important for pretty much everyone.
