Workouts range from gentle, low-impact exercises to routines that require greater strength, balance, and flexibility.

Our Pilates classes in Cardiff will benefit anyone looking to improve their physical fitness, posture, flexibility, and overall wellbeing, regardless of age, fitness level, or health status.

What To Wear For Your Pilates Class

There is no right or wrong way to dress for pilates. Our classes are all about fluid movements and gentle stretches so you'll want to wear something that allows your body to move freely. Whether that is your favourite tight vest top or comfiest oversized t-shirt, it is up to you!

Typically, our members will carry out our Pilates class barefoot. But feel free to wear a clean pair of trainers, that allow plenty of room for your feet to bend. 

If this isn't enough, we've also put together a few pointers on the perfect workout wardrobe to ensure you hit our Cardiff pilates studio dressed for success.


Pilates are ideal for anyone looking to improve their core strength and flexibility, but if you’re looking to enhance your cardiovascular health, consider adding other forms of aerobic exercise to your routine.
