Online Mat based pilates classes that fuse contemporary & classical Pilates.

Pilates was first established in 1920 by Joseph Pilates as a means to rehabilitate athletes and dancer back to fitness after injury.

Pilates is now used as a general fitness tool for the general public although it is still used a rehabilitation or life enhancing tool for physios and other health professionals. Pilates is amazing for rehabilitating an injury or learning to work around one.


In our Pilates Orkney classes we recognise there are other health benefits including:

  • improved flexibility

  • increased muscle strength and tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks (the ‘core muscles’ of your body)

  • balanced muscular strength on both sides of your body

  • enhanced muscular control of your back and limbs

  • improved stabilisation of your spine

  • improved posture

  • rehabilitation or prevention of injuries related to muscle imbalances

  • improved physical coordination and balance

  • relaxation of your shoulders, neck and upper back

  • safe rehabilitation of joint and spinal injuries

  • safe exercise for neurological conditions

  • safe for exercise during pregnancy and the postnatal period

  • prevention of musculoskeletal injuries
