Online Mat Classes

Group Classes

 

In all of my online group classes, I make sure that everyone feels included, safe and supported. What makes my classes unique is the individual attention that I give to each and every member of the group. I keep my class sizes small so that I am able to maintain this high level of observation.

Pilates helps to improve and maintain our sense of balance which in turn helps to prevent future falls. As our bodies become stronger they also become more resistant to injury and less affected by daily aches and pains. Pilates being a mind and body exercise is also hugely helpful in helping to calm and focus the mind, creating a sense of mental wellbeing.

I love sharing my knowledge with clients and helping them to move away from pain and towards better mobility and ease of movement. You will find a secure and welcoming environment in all of my classes.

My online classes are mixed level. I give optional levels for each exercise so both new and experienced movers can participate.

  • The Monday 9.45am class is a Classical Pilates class. It follows the classical sequence of exercises as Joseph Pilates prescribed. I still break down the exercises so it’s accessible to all levels.
  • The Thursday 9.30am class is contemporary, using different exercises and variations to the original sequence set by Joseph Pilates.

Every exercise is taught in a clear concise manner. This enables everyone to understand the movements regardless of their experience.

 

 

One-to-One Classes

 

My attention to detail is invaluable when it comes to one-to-one sessions. These sessions allow the time to really drill down into specific problem areas, injuries or movement difficulties. They allow the time to examine habitual movement patterns in order to identify what may be causing imbalances within the body.

One-to-one sessions are tailored specifically for your body to meet your health and fitness goals and to fit into your time schedule. If you’re struggling with an injury, wanting to get stronger or suffering from persistent neck or back pain these classes could really help you. Whatever your issue we can work on a suitable programme for your body.

Danielle is a professional, encouraging, patient and supportive teacher and she provides detailed explanation throughout the exercises. Having practiced Pilates for many years with a variety of teachers I feel as though I finally have a much greater level of understanding of what I am doing within each exercise and as a result feel much stronger.

Having one to ones has significantly improved how I work within my group session classes where she creates a friendly but always professional atmosphere.

The back pain I have suffered with for a number of years, often made worse in classes with previous Pilates teachers, has hugely improved since working with Danielle.

I have various other issues as a result of a couple of car accidents, various sprains, broken bones, frozen shoulders etc but these are all now effectively managed with Danielle’s help.

I can recommend Danielle without hesitation and feel blessed to have found her.

Danielle’s Pilates classes have really helped me manage my hyper-mobility. She is very attuned to what my body needs in each session, and has a positive, genuine and relaxed teaching style which I really appreciate.

Since working with Danielle, my body feels a lot stronger.
