Caring for the body you live in

Welcome to Palace Pilates

Located in the heart of Crystal Palace, we have been offering pilates classes to the Palace community for the last 17 years.

Pilates is an incredible body conditioning method that works in a different way to other fitness techniques.  Targeting the deep postural muscles, it works by building strength from the inside out rebalancing the body and bringing it to its optimal alignment.

Whether it’s a general class to improve your strength, posture, flexibility, or a course specifically focussing on managing back pain we have something to offer you.

Student Testimonials

“Three years ago I was suffering from severe back pain in the lumber region.

My physiotherapist suggested pilates and recommended Suzanne. Since joining her classes, I have been absolutely pain-free.  As an added bonus, pilates has increased my physical fitness and flexibility.”

Andy Peake

“Last night was excellent. Denise was really attuned to my specific needs and modifications. It was really evident that you’d filled her in about me. The attentiveness to individual needs and personal touch is so rare and means so much. It’s really clear that you model this and have built a Pilates team that has a wonderful ethos. Thank you so much! I feel really lucky to have found you!”

Desiree Stewart

“I came to Suzanne’s class after falling on a wet floor, resulting in a back injury.  After attending classes my core muscles became stronger and this helped with the pain in my back.  I also found that my balance was better and I gained more confidence. Suzanne is a very good Pilates teacher with a great understanding of any medical condition the members of her class had.   After each class, I felt really fit and  feel so much stronger now.”

Ann Fish

“I enjoyed the Pilates one to one session very much. It was invaluable being shown exactly what to do and for the great tips you gave me on making some of the existing exercises easier, and more effective.  I’m looking forward to starting next term already!!”

She has been a respected and valued member of our rehab team for over 10 years and her clients have a deep appreciation for all the expertise, care and warmth she imparts. Palace Pilates is an outstanding service which enhances posture and movement control after an injury and is equally important as a way of staying healthy and moving well.
