Sep 14th, 2021 Workshops DoukaEditor 6 min read

After more than a year of classes via zoom,I am thrilled to return to the studio. The face to face Pilates session is a completely different experience for myself and the students.   The student can really be in the moment and sense their bodies  away from distractions and their computer screens.  Almost like practising the very trendy Mindfulness.   In the studio, I enjoy teaching duets or 1-2-1 sessions. This allows me to tailor the class to the client’s specific needs which makes it interesting for both ends.   In the equipment pilates studio apart from the mat  and some small equipment such as resistance bands,  gym ball,weights, wobble cushions, we have the gorgeous Pilates machines,  originally designed by Mr Pilates himself. The reformer is the most known but we also use the Wunda chair and the cadillac or tower.    The machines not only help to tailor the class to the student’s abilities  but also to get better results,  either assisting the student by providing support  or challenging them by adding resistance.   To welcome you to the studio and my work there is an introductory offer running:   Your first 1-2-1 session at HALF PRICE £30 and 20% off your first block of 10/5 classes.   Book your class by email at: info@somaticcircles.com or text at 07876115107  Prices 2021/2022 1 Hour 1-2-1 Equipment Pilates Class £60 Block of 10 1-2-1 Sessions £500 Block of 5 1-2-1 Sessions £275…
