Frequently Asked Questions (updated December 2017)
What shall I wear?
Anything comfortable, that you can move freely in – Jeans are NOT appropriate as they can restrict movement, and can be uncomfortable to lie on. Also wear a layer or two, one that can be removed and replaced as required – you will be surprised how warm you will get in Pilates
Is Pilates suitable for Beginners?
Yes it is – Please speak to Nikki regarding your Pilates/Exercise experience before attending the class.
Do I need to bring anything?
Please bring an exercise mat with you, this is for health & hygiene reasons. Also bring some water. A towel that can be rolled up and used as additional support is a good idea too, especially when attending for the first few times, whilst Nikki analyses your posture and alignment.

Nikki is a fab instructor and makes everyone feel at ease. I started Pilates with Nikki following a prolapsed disc and sacroiliac weaknesses. I can do moves that I couldn’t to start with and each session strengthens my core and sacroiliacs. I know when I’ve been and I certainly know when I haven’t been.
I can’t recommend Nikki enough x
