Our Pilates Studios

At The Body Workshop Pilates we’ll support you in getting the maximum benefit from Pilates and feel it is important you take classes and sessions that are the most appropriate for you and your body. We offer this through one-to-ones, Mat classes and Reformer classes at our Pilates studios in the heart of Cirencester.

Mat Pilates Classes

Our Pilates Mat classes provide participants with a well-rounded workout using resistance from the body, focus from the mind, and support from the Mat. Classes will sometimes incorporate simple props such as bands, over balls, franklin balls, and magic circles to help you experience the feelings to master the moves.

Our experienced instructors will guide you safely through the class offering demonstrations, explanations, and detailed Imagery so you can gain the full benefits of Mat Pilates.

One of the many benefits of taking Mat Pilates is that you will be armed with the skills to practice by yourself whenever you wish. If you are on our quarterly membership then you also receive 24/7 access to our on-demand video library.

If you haven’t done Pilates before please book a 1:1 introduction before taking the class. All classes are mixed level therefore once you have taken your introduction you can join any class. We encourage you to take the same class every week to gain maximum benefit.

Reformer Pilates Classes

Our Reformer classes increase strength, endurance, and flexibility.  In our Cirencester studio, we have 6 state-of-the-art Balance Body Reformers. During classes, you have your own dedicated Reformer to lie, sit, stand and balance on.

The Reformer is a moving carriage with resistance that can be changed depending on the desired outcome. The feedback of the spring resistance feeds more information into the nervous system so that the body can align and work in the most efficient and optimal way.

If you are on the Reformer quarterly membership then you also receive 24/7 access to our on-demand video library.

If you are new to Reformer classes please ensure you book an introduction before booking into a class. If you have taken Reformer classes elsewhere you are welcome to come straight into classes.
