What style of Pilates can you expect at Pure Moves?
There are many forms and variations of Joseph Pilates contrology exercises, but most teaching will fall into either ‘classical’ or ‘contemporary’ groups. The ‘classical’ method closely follows the original Joseph Pilates regime with exercises being performed in a particular order in every class.

At Pure Moves we offer a contemporary approach. This is an adaptive style which allows for greater flexibility in it’s teaching, to suit client’s individual needs and 21st century lifestyles. Contemporary teaching takes the bio-mechanical principles of Pilates and applies them to all physical movement. This is why this method works particularly well for sports people and rehabilitation.

Our Pilates teachers have all been professionally trained to the highest standards from teaching establishments such as Body Control Pilates and the Pilates Foundation. Pure Moves teachers have backgrounds in both ‘classical’ and ‘contemporary’ training and their expert knowledge of Joseph Pilates exercises will help you get the very best from every class that you attend.
