Here is an overview of the different Garuda Pilates Classes and Yoga Classes that we are currently running.
Please see our timetable for weekly class times.
Alongside our regular, weekly Pilates Classes and Yoga Classes, we also run private and semi private (up to three clients) sessions. For more information on this, please visit our services page.
The most effective introduction for any beginner pilates or advanced pilates client to STOTT PILATES is through an entrance assessment. An entrance assessment is a private training session. The trainer begins by doing a postural analysis which takes 10 – 15 minutes and permits the trainer to create a postural profile which allows future workouts at Northwest Pilates to be tailored to your characteristics. The client has the choice of whether they want to treat the symptoms with just movement or the root cause by incorporating others aspects of the body.
V2 Max Plus Reformer/Mat Combo
Despite the somewhat medieval name, the STOTTPILATES Reformer machine is actually an amazingly elegant machine. The STOTTPILATES Reformer provides finely tuned exercise resistance that allows one to work very precisely to develop good alignment, core strength, and flexibility. Our Multi apparatus sessions use towers, ladder barrel, Cadillac, stability chair and fuse ladders.
The STOTT PILATES mat class is great for beginners or those returning to exercise, incorporating the five basic principles. You will build core strength-the foundation of stability in exercises in order to progress. Our pilates mat classes are designed to rebalance the body, bringing it into correct alignment, improving posture and body function. We also offer Garuda Pilates Mat sessions. Garuda is a holistic, organic approach to movement which concentrates on flow and rhythm. It has the clarity and mindfulness of Pilates as its core, the economy of form of Alexander Technique, the self-perception of Feldenkrais, the spirituality of yoga and the joy of dance.
Garuda Yoga Flow
This class is based on the latest research in fascial trains incorporating James de Silva’s Garuda work which takes the class to the next level. Garuda combines the strength work of pilates, the breathwork and asana practices of yoga and the grace of dance.
Nordic walking is an exciting new outdoor walking technique using specially designed walking poles. It is one of the fastest growing recreational fitness sports in the world. For the general exerciser, Nordic Walking burns on average 20% more calories than normal walking at the same speed, plus most people find it makes walking more comfortable.
“I have been attending Pilates classes in St Helens for a number of years now. I originally started at the Claughton Street premises, before moving to the new studio and now attend the recently refurbished studio in Claughton Street. The Pilates class is taught by Nisha, an extremely experienced professional and because the groups and so small everyone receives individual attention. The work is challenging but enjoyable. I started Pilates due to a back problem but feel this form of exercise has relieved the problems and find I struggle when I miss a class.”
