Beginners Pilates

Welcome to your Pilates journey with Pilates Donegal

A Big Warm Welcome to Pilates with Pilates Donegal. We hope you will feel your classes make a difference to your body. 

What to expect

We work all the main muscle groups and joints of the body. We generally start at a slower pace to build up confidence gradually.  

How we teach

Each exercise will be demonstrated and explained before you will be asked to follow. We then observe, and correct.

Building your confidence

Our Beginners classes and our Let's Move classes cover all the basics – the exercises and the principles of Pilates. The aim is to give you a good feel and understanding of Pilates.

Not bendy or fit enough?

Just bring the body you have and we will take it from there. Our goal is to help you maintain and develop your all over body strength, flexibility, mobility, muscle balance, and stability.

New to exercise classes?

The toughest part of your class will probably be just showing up. You will be encouraged to work at your pace. Give yourself time - we all were beginners and understand what it is like.

Goal for each of your classes

Your goal is to leave your class at least a little bit better than when you arrived. Stop and rest when you need to. Accept options to increase/decrease the challenge level of moves to suit you.

Medical conditions or injuries

Having a medical condition or injuries will require you to check with your GP to ensure Pilates is right for you at the moment. It may mean that some of your exercises need to be modified to ensure you get the benefit of them - that's okay, we are very flexible - we can easily take a different approach.
