Pilates Studio in Banbury


The studio at Balance Pilates is a lovely place to meet new friends in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. All my classes are intended to be challenging, safe, comfortable, and rewarding. If you have never tried Pilates before, or you are unsure if you’ll like it, why not book an introductory session with me directly at the Pilates studio in Banbury, so I can talk you through all the aspects of physiotherapy Pilates?





What is Pilates?

It’s a mind-body centring technique, a non-aerobic exercise, which lengthens and strengthens muscles and improves posture, without stressing the joints. The main focus is to strengthen the central core.

Pilates works on strengthening the weaker muscles to ensure a properly balanced body and to correct abnormal movement patterns that can be the cause of pain and persistent injury, by concentrating on precision of movement, control of breath and continued flowing movement, which was Joseph Pilates’ concept.

What are the benefits of Pilates?

  • Improved posture
  • Stronger healthier back
  • Better co-ordination
  • Greater body awareness
  • Injury prevention
  • Stress relief



What should I wear?

Any comfortable clothing that is non-restrictive is absolutely fine, such as leggings, shorts or tracksuit joggers. We don’t have a dress code at Balance Pilates.

Do I need to arrive early?

Try and arrive on time if you can, or if you need to get changed, try to arrive a few minutes early. You can join a session late, but of course, if you do, you may miss some of the best moves of the class!

Do I need to bring anything?

All the mats and equipment required is supplied at the studio. However, some clients do bring their own equipment if they have it. All equipment is wiped down after use and there is hand gel in the studio, so we are as Covid safe as we can be. You may want to bring a towel to lay on your mat, and water to drink afterwards.

How many people are in a class?

Classes at the Pilates studio in Banbury are usually between five and eight people, and a maximum of ten.

How often should I perform Pilates to gain a benefit?

Consistency is the key. Attending a class once a week interspersed with home Pilates exercises will be enough to notice a difference. However the more regularly you perform the exercises, the faster you will feel the benefits.

How do I make payment?

You can pay by card over the phone after booking, or in cash on the day if you prefer.

How much is a class?

Classes are £9 per session if you pay and book for the whole month at once, or £11 per class if booked and paid for individually

Can I come to classes as a novice?

Absolutely! It is always best if you are able to attend a one-to-one introduction session to gain the basic key elements of the movements and movement dissociation. However, over time these will be gained in class. Just be prepared to engage mind and body!

Can I take this class if I am recovering from an injury?

Physio-led Pilates classes are one of the best classes you can take if you are recovering from an injury or operation. You will gain strength and mobility, with minimal risk of injury or recurrence.
