Pilates classes at Embody Wellness in Vauxhall South London

The Pilates method is an exercise system which focuses on improving core strength, flexibility and balance. It uses a series of controlled and systematic movements coupled with focused breathing to engage both the body and the mind. It is ideal for anyone wanting to correct bad postural habits, overcome back problems, improve athletic performance, or simply increase their general levels of fitness and wellbeing. Pilates can be practised by students of all abilities and benefits everyone.

At Embody we have a great team of friendly and experienced teachers with a range of classes for all levels, though if you’ve never done Pilates before we suggest joining a Level 1-2 class to begin with. There are some useful tips and information in this blog on what to expect during your first Pilates classes.

If you’d prefer a more personalised experience try our one-on-one sessions for the ultimate in individual instruction and customised exercises. One-on-one sessions are available for both mat-based Pilates and Reformer Pilates (which utilises specially-designed equipment to enhance support and resistance during training).

Classes are held in our spacious light-filled studio, conveniently located between Pimlico and Stockwell on the Victoria Line, and just a short stroll from Kennington, Westminster and Nine Elms.
