Our specialised Edinburgh Pilates classes are designed for people of all ages. If you need to improve body posture and flexibility, you are welcome to our classes. Just make an appointment to visit and join The Edinburgh Pilates Centre. Our specialised instructors will show you around, allowing you to experience the mind soothing atmosphere & note the simplicity of the Pilates exercises. If you would like to give it a try, we will ask you to fill out a form for your medical history & details of any physical injury and current treatments. You will be asked to bring a letter from your general physician or specialist before you start the Pilates classes, if necessary.
Authentically designed to help you fall in love with your physical fitness, our Pilates classes are extremely engaging, fun, interactive & effective. At the first session, our specialised instructor will assess your posture. He or she will point out the imbalances & asymmetrical aspects quickly. You will be surprised by the faults they figure out, but don’t worry – these faults are common. Over the next few Pilates classes, the instructor will show you the basics of the method and help you to develop an individual programme that works for your needs. Thereafter you will use the Pilates studio to do your class, under the constant supervision of your instructor.
Our First Personal Session
The first personal session at the Edinburgh Pilates Centre is dedicated to a complete body analysis. The instructor will focus on:

- Body flexibility tests
- Upper and lower portion strength analysis
- Core strength tests
In addition, we also focus on transverse abdominis, lower back and abdominal tests.
These individual authentic Pilates approaches will help you to improve your body posture and flexibility. What are you waiting for? Join our Pilates classes today.
SIX PRINCIPLES OF PILATES
Pilates is not simply a collection of exercises, it is a method which follows a set of basic principles. You need to be familiar with these six principles before starting to do the movements. The Pilates Method has been carefully developed and refined through use and observation over the last sixty years, its principles based on a solid, practical approach [no mysticism or divine intervention here!].
