PILATES IN EXETER WITH FIONA SWAN
Pilates in Exeter is run by Fiona Swan, Level 3 Pilates Instructor & Level 4 specialist in 'Exercise for Lower Back Pain' and 'Pilates for Common Orthopaedic Conditions'.
Fiona is also qualified in Pre and Post Natal Exercise and GP Exercise Referral.
If you're looking to improve your health and well-being, Pilates is a great way to start.
Done easily from home, it's an ideal way to improve strength, flexibility and posture along with balance and co-ordination skills. If you have any existing joint or posture issues it's an ideal activity as many of the exercises mirror those provided by physiotherapists and other health care professionals.
Pilates is suitable for everyone as exercises can be layered or adapted to meet with your individual requirements.
So why not keep well at home with either One to One tuition or a Group Class online? I am also running weekly small group beginners sessions. See my timetable to make a start.
If you are pre or post natal please call to discuss your requirements
If you have any questions please call it will be nice to talk to you in this online world!
Kind regards. Fiona
MORE ABOUT EACH CLASS
GENERAL PILATES CLASS
My group Pilates classes are currently run online and are a great way to improve strength, flexibility and posture. My classes are suitable for both beginner to intermediate levels as the exercises are layered or adapted from basic to more challenging, meaning that you can progress and work safely and at your own level.
Each class follows the Core Principles of Pilates where the movements are done with precision and control, in a flowing manner from a strong and stable centre. Consideration is given to breathing and the mind & body connection.
Classes are between 45 minutes and one hour, and if you have them at home, make use of equipment such as bands, balls, the Pilates ring and foam roller if you have them. Adding equipment enables you to progress and improve strength once you have mastered the basic levels.
STRENGTH & CONDITIONING CLASS
Improve your strength, endurance and bone density with this online class which uses body weight, free weights and resistance bands to develop body strength.
The focus of this class is learning a variety of simple exercises, with good form, so that you can continue to do them safety and effectively at home. (Bottles filled with water or cans may be used if you don't have any weights)
The numerous benefits of strength and endurance training are:
Improved bone density
stronger tendons and ligaments
decreased risk of injury
less risk of falls
And of course more aesthetically pleasing muscle tone and increased calorie burn, even at rest!
Suitable for both men and women, the class runs every Thursday 9.10 - 10am Online.
ONE to ONE PILATES
If you're looking for a more personal approach or you're completely new to Pilates, my One to One session may be just for you. A personal session is an excellent way to make a start as your individual requirements can be met and you can learn the basics and get into good practice very early on. Similarly if you have been doing Pilates for a while, an occasional one to one can also enable any minor faults to be corrected & more progression to be made, enabling you to get much more out of the activity.
I also offer personal training programmes. This starts with a fitness and lifestyle assessment of current levels of fitness/wellbeing (your exercise preferences) along with goal setting and ongoing motivation and support.
One to One sessions costs from £30 per hour.
"I love my one to one classes with Fiona. They are motivating and fun. Fiona is really good at tailoring the class to your personal needs and style, is patient and encouraging. Highly recommended, especially for those lacking in willpower!" Lynn Wethenhall, Exeter.
