My Pilates classes are very organic as I trained under Michael King initially and then continued to study with other companies to be able to bring a large array of experience and influence to them. I like to vary the classes all the time and no two are the same. Having said that for the classical moves if you have done Pilates before you will be able to follow along fine using neutral positions to achieve stability through the joints being actioned upon. I draw from outside of Pilates to provide a whole body experience and my classes are aimed at using many different movements requiring as many joints as possible in any one session.
HIIT (High-intensity interval training)
My HIIT classes are generally aimed at women of peri- to post- menopause but would be challenging for anyone wanting to give them a go. They are 30 minutes long and cover the whole body in that session. I prefer the HIIT format as this can achieve a quick workout that gets the heart rate up and uses strength movements to challenge the muscles and bones and fascia.
My MELT classes are:-
MELT Express - which provides a 30 minute MELT map for those people who cannot commit to a longer session currently on ZOOM
FULL MELT which is an hour long session. MELT MAPS are a series of sequences put together to provide hydration and stabilisation through the fascia network and joints of the body. This amazing technique is suitable for everyone.
MELT Taster Workshops and MELT Beginners' Courses. These are run regularly "live" in village halls for the newcomer to MELT.
MELT Masterclass. A two and half hour Masterclass to refine and perfect your MELT technique, or to concentrate on a specific part of the body, for example pain in the knee joint. These are notified on the "Course and Workshops" Page and also via the MELTERS WhatsApp Group which you will become a member of on completion of the MELT Beginners' Course and starting your MELT Journey attending MELT classes with me.
