Your First Session
Sessions usually involve exercises on mats or gym balls and are held as 1-to-1 sessions or in small classes. Classes are also graded as beginner or advanced classes or 1-to-1s. You will need to wear suitable clothing like t-shirt, shorts or loose trousers; exercises are normally performed in bare feet.
Group classes are kept small to ensure individual attention and cost £11 per person. One-on-one sessions last for 30 minutes and cost £38.
We recommend that everyone have an individual session before entering a class. If you have a previous injury, it is a pre-requisite of the group sessions that you have an individual session; this is so that we can assess you and ensure that you are ready for the group classes without causing any additional damage to yourself.
