BEGINNING PILATES

If you would like to see how Pilates
works, you are invited to make an
appointment to come and visit
The Edinburgh Pilates Centre.

A COMMON STRUCTURE OF CLASS

The first thing you’re asked on beginning a class is “how are you?” If you’ve been coming a while this has probably been running through your mind on the way to class. We teach you to scan your body and mind looking for messages they are sending.

This may be in the form of feelings, pains [dull or sharp], body temperature, recurring thoughts in the mind, emotional states, stiffness in the body etc. – anything that can affect your approach to class.
