Caring for the body you live in
Information & FAQs
Palace Pilates prides itself on its experienced teaching team, personal approach and range of classes. We offer numerous classes designed to improve posture, spinal mobility and pain prevention.
We have intentionally kept our range of classes small: For those new to Pilates or needing a gentler rehabilitative approach the beginners class is the one. Core Pilates and Back Care is our go to class incorporating all the elements of pilates and focussing on different themes each class/month. Finally our Dynamic classes are our strongest most advanced class. We love talking pilates so are happy to advise if you are new and for you to try out a few if your not sure. We believe we have something for everybody.
We are also super excited to add to our timetable a weekly QI GONG and MEDITATION CLASS. Qi Gong is something our founder Suzanne has been passionate about for many years and is incredibly helpful for dealing with stress as it manifests in the body. This class is a blend of gentle Qi Gong Life giving healing movements, breath work AND a guided relaxation / meditation. Suitable for everyone.
These classes are suitable for beginners and will develop your understanding and application of the basic pilates principles – good alignment, breathing, stability and core strength. This is a good follow on from our Introductory course and/or a good entry level class.
These classes assume a level of understanding of the basic Pilates technique and are great to take you further into the repertoire building your technique and strength. These classes often include Physiotherapy based exercises and always focus on back care and improving your posture, strength and mobility.
For those who want a balanced, effective, total body workout. These classes cover a lot of the challenging, higher intensity intermediate and advanced matwork repertoire. Here the focus is on strengthening and toning the body and we often use various pieces of equipment to increase the challenge. These are strong classes not suitable for beginners or people with current back issues.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I start classes half way through a month?
Is it guaranteed that I will get into the course that I request?
Are the courses an upfront full payment?
We offer a 4 Class Monthly pass payable on the 1st of every month and whilst we ask you to stipulate which ‘Regular’ Class you will take you can mix and match these 4 sessions during the month.
What if I want to guarantee my space on a particular day and time?
Once you have joined and set up a ‘Regular’ Class slot, priority will be given to you for a space next month. Everyone paying by standing order is guaranteed a space the following month. If you pay by bank transfer during the last week of the month, we will email you and ask if you would like to retain your space.
This ensures you have continuity of training and also helps us know what availability we potentially have for new students.

Students are advised to bring a towel with them to place on the head cushions and your own mat. We do provide sanitising solutions should you need to borrow one of our mats but definately recommend you bring your own. All other equipment used will be provided.
