Pilates

 

The Douglas Method is delivered through one to one sessions but more uniquely within a class situation.   Typically, Pilates, Personal Training and other types of fitness classes do not give corrective exercises to participants. Instead, they try to accommodate a range of problems by offering modifications and adaptations (some of which can cause other issues).

                                                   

The result of this is that you do not progress beyond a certain level.                                                      

The Douglas Method is all about understanding the root of your injuries, and other physical conditions, correcting where possible, and from there helping you progress to optimum physical function.  

               

Due to the nature of this approach, “drop-in” places are not available in classes, and clients are required to sign up for a 10 week rolling programme     (This also means that your place is guaranteed even where I have a waiting list for class places.)  The fee of £70 payable at the first class, by cash or cheque, whichever you prefer.  You can join the classes at any time,  but *please check availability* with me first!

 

Please also be aware that, depending on your fitness issues, you may need the in-depth attention of one-to-one consultation time, rather than (or prior to) participating in a class – the best thing to do is to have a chat with me about it and we can decide together what the best way forward is.

 

Hope this gives you the information you  need, more is available at my website at: www.douglaspilates.co.uk  but please don’t hesitate to email or call me on 07704216645 if you have any questions, concerns, or simply prefer to talk to a real person!
