How we run Pilates classes

Terms and conditions

1. Classes

Pilates classes are run in consecutive 15-week blocks. The class duration is 1 hour. Current class attendees have the first option to continue in the next 15-week block.

2. Payment

A block of 15 classes costs £210. Payment must be made in advance, preferably in full for the 15 weeks, or we will accept 2 payments of £105 for the block. The first payment is due by the first class of the block at the latest. Failure to make a payment by the start of the block may result in your place being given to the next person on the waiting list. You may pay by cash, cheque or credit/debit card. Cheques are to be made payable to ‘Southfields Physiotherapy Ltd’.

3. Missed classes, cancellations, no shows and make-ups

We understand that you may have to miss a class. We would be grateful if you could advise reception that you will not be attending a class with as much notice as possible (a minimum of 24 hours is required to qualify for a make-up class). This makes it possible for us to facilitate the make-up process for everyone. No-shows in classes do not qualify for make-ups, and in addition, cancelled and missed classes do not qualify for a refund.

Make-Up class terms
  • 3.1 For make-up classes on Tuesdays to Saturdays, please call reception the day before your preferred make-up class to book, during reception hours of 08:00 to 20:00. You can still contact reception on the day if need be.
  • 3.2 Monday make-up classes can be arranged by contacting the Saturday reception team, 08:30 to 14:30. Or again, you can call on the day.
  • 3.3 Please do not leave telephone messages or email the clinic to arrange a make-up class. If you do, these will not be acknowledged or noted, unfortunately.
  • 3.4 To facilitate the make-up class process, we request that you cancel any class that you are not able to attend in advance, even if at short notice.
4. Special circumstances

Should you have any special circumstances, such as illness or injury, during your 15-week block, please inform not only your instructor but also, importantly, reception. We may be able to assist you during this period.

5. Refunds and credits

Missed classes are not refundable. Should a class be cancelled by Southfields Physiotherapy, you will be entitled to a credit, which can be offset against the next Pilates block, or an additional make-up class will be offered. In certain special circumstances, as agreed by the Clinic Director, refunds will be issued. You may cancel within a block by providing 14 days’ notice in writing to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

6. Pilates Assessments

New class participants are required to attend a Pilates Assessment with a Chartered Physiotherapist prior to joining a Pilates class at Southfields Physiotherapy. During this assessment a detailed medical history is taken and fundamental principles of Pilates are explained and taught practically. These assessments are considered an important component in the management of client safety

7. Waiver forms

In certain exceptional circumstances (for example, participants who are physiotherapists or personal trainers), a Pilates assessment may not be required. In this case, a waiver form is to be completed, signed and returned to Southfields Physiotherapy before commencement of the first Pilates class.

8. Registration

Registration webforms will be emailed to all current participants 3 weeks prior to the start of the next 15-week block. You will only secure your place when the webform has been completed and emailed back to Southfields Physiotherapy. One reminder email will be sent to those who have not replied within the designated time. If there is no response upon receipt of this email, your place will be offered to the first person on the waiting list.

Class Descriptions

  • 8 Principles of Pilates +

    There are 8 Pilates principles that are incorporated into our Pilates classes and individual sessions. Some of these principles are covered in the initial Pilates assessment designed to make you more familiar with these concepts before you join a class. They are:

    Concentration     Breathing     Centering     Control     Precision     Flowing movement     Integrated isolation     Routine

  • Beginner Intermediate Class +

    The beginner/intermediate Pilates class aims to get all participants to reach an intermediate level of Pilates. Beginners are introduced into these classes at any stage and the instructor is able to modify each exercise to suit your level. Most of our classes are pitched at a level that is suitable for gaining and maintaining a good level of core stability and is also ideal for managing chronic pain or injuries. The class focuses on developing correct postural alignment and movement patterns and gradually builds good core muscle strength and endurance.

  • Core Stability Class +

    The core stability class is a more advanced class that combines traditional Pilates exercises with a selection of other functional core and strength exercises. It attracts sports people and those who enjoy a bit more of a strength emphasis. It is suitable for someone who is familiar with intermediate level Pilates and who is fairly strong and well conditioned at the outset. The class is faster paced than the regular Pilates classes, varies from week to week, and may include the use of small equipment such as Swiss balls, foam rollers, gliders, BOSU’s and resistance bands. There are more advanced functional exercises in standing, such as squats and lunges with trunk rotation. Potential participants may trial the class by prior arrangement.

  • Antenatal Pilates Class +

    The antenatal Pilates class concentrates on strengthening the muscles used to support your joints (particularly your pelvis and spine) and your growing baby. It incorporates gentle but effective stretching and core strengthening exercises. These will help to maintain the strength of your abdominals and pelvic floor as they stretch and other exercises will help to improve your overall strength in preparation for all the lifting and carrying of your new baby! Exercises are done in safe positions for your stage of pregnancy. The class is slower paced than regular Pilates classes and also focuses on breathing and relaxation.

  • Over 60's Pilates Class +

    This class is suitable for those who want to work at their own pace in a gentle, relaxed and friendly class. Exercises can be modified to accommodate limitations due to arthritis, osteoporosis, or any other restrictions. This class is performed at a slower pace and can help to improve and optimise posture and gait, can help protect against osteoporosis, is gentle on vulnerable joints and focuses on improving balance giving you confidence for everyday activities. Specially formulated for those who would like to exercise, but feel intimidated by the pace and demands of other Pilates classes. This class is run by our Chartered Physiotherapist with a special interest in this age group.
