Our bespoke Pilates is not just a class you attend it is a practice that changes your body for a lifetime
Our Beginner Pilates Principles course aims to build a strong foundation of movement prior to joining our regular classes. It is designed to improve flexibility, posture, core control, stability and back health.
Who is it for?
It is suitable for anyone new to exercise, those who wish to add this to their fitness routine or those who want to understand their body posture better. We believe that good form and posture gives better results so have designed this 4 week course with that in mind.
What is involved?
This comprehensive Pilates course develops correct movement on the mat with small props and the large apparatus like the reformer, stability chair and cadillac wall springs. This course is essential in providing confidence in the Pilates basic movements, understanding the language used in our classes and learning to listen to your body.
What is a reformer?
Joseph Pilates, who created the method, used these large machines as a starting point for his clients as they provided support for the spine and pelvis, assisted in flexibility and gave feedback for better movement. We use the reformer and other spring apparatus to provide variety, support and challenge in our classes.
The structure of the Beginner Pilates course:
Week 1– Learn the pilates principles on the mat including breath, pelvic placement and core control.
Week 2 – Work with small props and the cadillac spring wall adding more resistance to the arms and legs and supporting spinal movement.
Week 3 – Transition onto the reformer and see how some of the basic movement can be done with the challenge of a moving surface.
Week 4 – Review the reformer and any other areas the instructor feels is necessary to transition into our classes
We are one of the few studios in Oxfordshire who offer a full class of 8 people on the reformers and it is important to us that our members work efficiently and safely.

- I had been searching for the perfect 'gym' for a long time when I stumbled upon Bodyfit Solutions almost by mistake, in around April 2016... I was hooked immediately! I am confident I can push myself to new limits and really can't thank Stu, Kelly and everyone at Bodyfit enough - HarrietClick To Tweet
- From the first bootcamp class I realised that I had nothing to worry about; there were modifications when you needed them and I felt really supported and encouraged by Stuart to give it my all. I noticed that with the expert advice I was getting that my general form was improving as well - Vikki.Click To Tweet
