“Pilates at The View Studio is a lovely way to exercise and be relaxed. It is my happy hour on a Monday evening, from walking up to the studio hearing the waves and then having that view across the sea. What more could you ask for when focusing on your core strength and balance in Pilates.” – Gemma Sanderson
This is a holistic class to rebalance and rejuvenate your body using light equipment. It will deliver a more fast-paced style of Pilates, without deviating from the principles of Pilates. This class is designed for clients who are of an advanced level and already attending regular Pilates and are looking to improve their strength, flexibility, posture and stamina.
HIIT the Barre EXPRESS – Intermediate
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) bursts are added to our BarreCLASSIC format, making this class one of the most challenging and sweatiest on our timetable. One of the quickest ways to get great, lasting results.
Mum and Baby Postnatal Fitness
This postnatal exercise class for Mum and baby starts with a 45 walk with baby in buggy or sling. The focus of the walk is to enhance correct posture and alignment and avoid creating bad habits when out walking with baby. The standing work helps to promote good core strength which in turn protects the spine helping to reduce back pain.
The second 45 minutes will be back in the studio and will concentrate on strengthening the hamstrings and glutes to support the lower back and develop strong core muscles.
Stretching will counter balance the constant roundness in the shoulders from lifting and breastfeeding baby. This class will also strongly focus on fixing pelvic floor dysfunction with a full body approach.

Pilates for seniors is the perfect class for older adults because it does not have the impact on the body that other forms of exercise do. This is a gentle way to exercise and aimed at the older adult or if you haven’t exercised in a while, Pilates is a safe way to restart a workout program.
“Following back-surgery, I have been coming to the Pilates Seniors class at the View Studio for about a year. Taught by Sam or Carol, I have found these sessions of huge benefit in strengthening my core and so lessening pressure on the back. The classes are led in an atmosphere of serene purpose and thoughtful awareness and there is always great sensitivity to individual needs.” – Anna Crowe
Pre Natal Pilates
Ante Natal or Pre Natal classes are highly recommended as a method of preparing the body for the rigours of childbirth and pregnancy.
Extra guidelines, modifications and recommendations are required when exercising during pregnancy and all Pre or Ante Natal Pilates are taught by our fully qualified and experienced Pre-Natal Instructors.
The specifically chosen Pilates exercises are safe and gentle, yet effective in helping to stabilise, strengthen, tone an maintain flexibility especially with the muscles used in delivery. This class is a great opportunity to socialise with other mums to be and to take one hour out of your day to focus on you and your baby.
“I would like to thank you for the classes. I feel so much more confident about the birth and have learnt how to move my body when the real contractions happen. I will certainly concentrate on doing the exercises you taught us about opening the pelvis.” – Siew Fong Chen
Stretching helps to develop flexible, supple muscles making finding correct alignment and positioning in Barre, Yoga and Pilates that little bit easier.
Stretch class incorporates fascial release technique with lengthening the muscles, which helps to increase flexibility and to ease stiffness, tension or general aches and pains.
Stretching combined with good breathing technique also helps to calm the mind and provide oxygen to the muscles encouraging them to elongate. We thoroughly recommend our members to take at least on stretch class a week to compliment their work out routine and chieve results even quicker.
