Group Mat

With our experienced teachers and access to a variety of props (foam rollers, balls, bands, and more…) our Pilates mat classes are never boring! With a maximum of 7 clients per class, we can focus our attention on each person so they get the greatest benefits from their mat session. Classes are available at all levels, from complete beginners to advanced. 

Group Reformer

The Pilates equipment adds a deeper level and dynamic to sessions. Each group class has maximum 5 clients, each on their own reformer. The different levels of classes allow each person to experience a full-body connection while working at their perfect pace! All reformer classes are 60 minutes and prebooking is essential.

Privates & Semi-Private

These one-hour sessions are tailor-made for the  individual. We have an opportunity to include Pilates mat and props, as well as equipment such as reformer, chair, cadillac, and barrels. Each trainer at The Source brings their unique background to their teaching (rehab, fascial work, dance…) so we’ll find your ideal match!

A BIT OF HISTORY ON JOSEPH H.PILATES

Joseph Pilates was born in 1883 near Dusseldorf, Germany. Although he was a sickly child, he developed himself into an accomplished athlete.

He was living in England when WW1 broke out, and he was interned on the Isle of Man.

While there, he developed the set of mat exercises now known as the Original 34. This is also where Pilates started using springs (from hospital beds) as resistance and these later evolved into the Pilates apparatus such as cadillac and reformer.

He moved to New York in the 1920’s and along with his wife, Clara, they opened a ‘body conditioning gym’. It soon became popular, especially with dancers, athletes and celebrities.

Although not always recognised, Clara was integral in teaching, training, and running their Contrology studio. Joseph wrote two books called ‘Your Health’ and ‘Return to Life Through Contrology’  which outlined his six principles (breath, precision, control, concentration, centering, flowing movement), repertoire and ideas of well-being.

Joseph Pilates died in 1967 and has left behind a legacy, a unique body of work, and dedicated followers who have continued to teach and evolve this method.
