Our Pilates classes at Village Gym Edinburgh will improve your flexibility, posture and balance with a low impact, full body workout.
Our Edinburgh members say our Pilates class leaves them feeling relaxed, revived and refreshed. What's not to love about that?
Our Pilates classes focus on control, breathing techniques and new ways to move your body for a full body workout.
Using your body for resistance to target key areas including the back, upper body and core, our Pilates class will help to improve strength and tone for a sleeker physique.
The low impact techniques used in our pilates class at Village Gym Edinburgh makes it a great all over body workout for all ages and abilities.
Many members suffering from lower back pain or osteoporosis choose our pilates class, thanks to the gentle movements and low pressure on the joints.
Our pilates class is a great choice for anyone who loves the community feel of a group workout, those trying to lose weight or members who want a fun way to tone up.
Pilates classes are about fluid, gentle movements, so you'll want to wear something that lets your body stretch and move freely.
We've put together a few pointers on the perfect workout wardrobe to ensure you hit our Edinburgh pilates studio dressed for success.
Pilates was created by German carpenter and gymnast, Joseph Pilates. He wanted to help injured dancers and soldiers maintain their fitness levels, without risk of further injury.
Joseph Pilates believed that physical and mental health were well connected. As do we at Village Gym Edinburgh!
In the 1920's he opened a Pilates studio in New York. It's since become a staple fitness class in studios across the world!
Our pilates class at Village Gym Edinburgh is designed for members who want to transform the way their body looks, feels and moves.
Attending regular pilates classes will help to improve the strength and tone of your body, as you work towards shaping a sleek physique, firmer thighs, tighter glutes and flatter abs.
The hundred (while focussing on breathing, we'll target core strength to improve stability)
The roll up (a gentle, well-controlled move to stretch the spine and strengthen abs)
Leg circles (pilates movements to strengthen the hips and core muscles)
Rolling ball (this move will massage the spine and open up the back)
Series of 5 (a series of pilates moves designed to strengthen the core and back muscles)
You'll get a lot more from your Edinburgh pilates class than just a fun workout! Our pilates class offers a number of great benefits too...
Banish The Bingo Wings
Pilates is a great option for strengthening the upper arms, tightening your glutes and toning up any wobbly bits!
Elongate Leg Muscles
Many models and dancers choose pilates as it elongates the arm and leg muscles, giving you a leaner, slimmer look.
Got Your Back
Lower-back pain can often be the result of weak abdominal muscles and bad posture. Our Edinburgh pilates class will work on your core and improve posture which will help to relieve lower back pain.
Attending regular pilates classes can help to reduce stress and improve stress-related conditions such as insomnia and anxiety.
The breathing techniques you'll practice during a pilates class will help to relax the mind and body, restore calm and improve your concentration.
Perfect Your Performance
If you're a tennis fan or golf lover, regularly enjoying one-sided sports like this can cause misalignment in the body.
Our Pilates class will help to properly align your body, develop muscular symmetry to improve your posture.
Pilates For PreNatal
Pilates is a great choice of fitness class for pregnant women, as it helps to align the spine and pelvis. Perfect for both post and pre-natal women who want to maintain their fitness levels, strengthen pelvic muscles or prepare for childbirth.
