Next level Pilates at Turning Tide
When you think of Pilates, you probably picture people bending and stretching on a floor mat. While that is definitely a form of Pilates, at Turning Tide we take it to the next level.
We are the only studio in the area that uses high quality Pilates Reformers and full Pilates Studio equipment during our sessions.
Using Pilates Reformers, Wunda Chair and Tower or Cadillac means you can build muscle and tone faster, even with injuries or conditions that need precise guidance, all while receiving the nourishing benefits of breathing well, mental focus and exercise induced endorphins.
At Turning Tide Pilates we offer small group classes, one-to-one and two-to-one sessions, workshops and retreats, plus online one to ones.
What is Pilates?
The Pilates method is recognised worldwide as a life changing wellness and fitness method. If you regularly attend classes, you will see lots of positive changes in yourself - both physically and mentally.
Here at the beautiful Turning Tide Studio, we use the principles taught by Joe and Clara Pilates.
We teach specific rebalancing exercises and Pilates Mat sequences, utilising specialist Pilates Studio equipment like the Pilates Reformer, Wunda Chair and Cadillac, to condition your entire body. We also teach healthy breathing practices used in the Pilates method to integrate your mind and body powerfully.

What are Pilates Reformer and Studio Equipment Classes?
Pilates Reformer and studio equipment classes involve the use of exercise machines that incorporate Pilates exercise techniques and unique approach.
Basically, it means that we use modern, state of the art equipment to ensure you are achieving your fitness, strength, flexibility and postural goals. Pilates Reformer and Studio apparatus are fun and challenging to work with and supportive to injured or deconditioned bodies.
Reformer Pilates can help you build muscle tone and feel stronger in the core, sometimes in less time than a standard mat class and also studio Pilates accurately addresses your personal postural traits, weaknesses and imbalances.
