Will this be too intense for me if I’m feeling out of shape? The 6 week Soo Pilates Challenge is not an intense exercise program. I teach restorative exercise practices that are Pilates based and are gentle on your body (while still being super strengthening!) and I offer lots of modifications.
How many spaces are there in the class? There will be 8 places in the class to ensure you get lots of individual attention.
What do I wear to the class? Please wear comfortable clothing including socks.
What do I need to bring to the class? Please bring some water.
What kit do I need?
You need a computer, laptop or phone and internet connection. The online exercises are available each week on part or full payment for the challenge.
I have found Pilates has really helped to improve my posture and to teach me techniques for how to relieve tight shoulders and neck which everyone who is desk based can suffer from.
As a qualified sports massage therapist she is great at explaining the benefits of the exercises she gets us to do and is always focused on making sure we adopt the correct technique.
The classes are fun, effective and varied – definitely a friendly environment and we generally see a good mixture of males and females.Hina @ Miller Insurances
Tina runs a great weekly Pilates class at our office that I’ve been going to for the last three years. As pretty much the only guy it would be easy to feel pretty awkward but Tina is relentlessly cheery, the vibe is always welcoming and I’ve ended up making friends in the building that I wouldn’t have otherwise.
Her classes focus more on good posture and effective form than plain old sweaty aerobic fitness and are all the better for it in my opinion. She takes an interest in each student’s body issues and goals and is careful to tailor each class according to whoever’s showed up on the night.
As part of her commitment to overall health, Tina is also a very effective masseuse (capable of putting a lot more weight in than you’d credit for her size!), which builds on the understanding of your physiology she gains from the class to really deal with your aches and pains. I have a recurrent back issue and between the class and the massages she’s really helped me get a handle on it and prevent any more flare ups.Pete @ Ketchum
