PILATES IN ST HELIER JERSEY
Pilates was originally developed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body. Nowadays, we use these Pilates principles to improve your strength, mobility and flexibility. Our Pilates classes are tailored to suit your needs.
Pilates is a great way to stretch, strengthen and balance your body regardless of your age. We tailor our Pilates classes to suit those in each class which is why you will find that no two classes are exactly the same.
Whether you prefer individual or small group Pilates classes we can help you. Our classes are taught by physiotherapists and highly qualified instructors who really understand movement and can ensure a safe and effective exercise programme.
Our Pilates team is led by Nigel Mann who is currently the only local physiotherapist certified as a Modified Pilates instructor by The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute in Jersey. He is now ably supported by Kelly Cornick. Our Pilates and Physiotherapy teams work together to ensure that your exercises are gradually progressed to reflect your improving condition.
Do something that’s relaxing for both body and mind and find a great place to escape for an hour. We know the benefits of Pilates if it is done correctly. Try it! It will be worth your while! Contact us now.
Pilates classes tailored for you
Ordinary Pilates classes are great if your abilities more or less match those of others in the group, but our Pilates instructors tailors the experience to each individual.
Drawing upon our experience, knowledge of exercises, skills, rehabilitation, anatomy and biomechanics, physiotherapists are best placed to appraise the latest research and apply it to our Pilates Classes.
In order for you to get the most from your classes, we insist upon a 1:1. During this session, the physios or instructors will really get to grips with your uniqueness; your medical history and existing or resolving medical conditions, what your goals are. This helps the instructor to tailor your exercises and progress you whilst allowing for your unique circumstances. This way you get the most out of your classes. This is what makes us different. This is one of the reasons why our clients derive more benefit than attending an ordinary class. You will be given a tour of the studio, taught the basic principles and specific exercises unique to you. Then you are ready to commence your class.
OUR CLASS SIZES ARE SMALL
All group Pilates Classes are hosted at the studio in BodyRox Gym, at Liberty Wharf. This is a more spacious studio, with showers and changing facilities enabling greater social distancing and peace of mind for all attendees.
1:1 sessions are at the clinic The Jersey Sports & Spinal Clinic, 5th Floor Osprey House, Old Street, St Helier
Please note that it is a requirement of our insurance that you must complete a 1:1 assessment prior to joining our classes.

PILATES HELPS WITH RECOVERY AFTER INJURY
Mrs A suffered from insomnia, chronic headaches and migraines and balance issues. Mrs A was treated initially for her headaches and exercises were given to improve her balance. At the same time Mrs A started a once weekly beginners Pilates class. She liked it so much she joined a second class and within 6 weeks had gotten rid of her headaches and significantly increased her balance times (from 1 second to 30 seconds single leg standing). Starting Physio and Pilates together has enabled Mrs A to (mostly) sleep through the night, cycle again for the first time in many years (she bought an e-bike) and join a gym.
Mr B (45) loves his tennis. Unfortunately, he was found that every time he started a new season, his back seized up and he spent the first 6 weeks needing help to get moving again. One of our physios was able to help him get moving with some hands on treatment and some home based Pilates stretches. He was so impressed with the results that he joined a class. This year, he was able to play tennis all season without a flare up. Now if we can only tailor the classes to speed up that serve!

I have come a long way since I first came to you at the beginning of the year, and would like you to know how thankful I am for all your support, reassurance and professionalism. It has been a difficult journey! My rehab with you, has been well explained, and clearly structured, and this I believe accounts for the progress I have made since surgery. I am enjoying the Pilates, and am keeping it up! Many Thanks once again, please pass on my comments to your fantastic team
Hopefully if I see you again it will be in more jolly circumstances, but if similar problems occur again, I know where to turn to! Thanks so much for all your first class help and physio – you really made a big difference to my recovery
I would like to add how impressed I have been by Verity in particular. First class
