Class definitions

Gentle Pilates Designed for clients who want to retain their mobility, balance and functional fitness for day to day life. These classes can accommodate clients with physical challenges, such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis or who have issues with getting down to a mat.
 
Beginner’s Pilates Designed for clients who are physically able and have no specific health challenges, but who are new to, have limited experience with or want a less challenging Pilates class. These classes will be based around a series of exercises that establish mobility, stability and balance, whilst addressing their fundamental understanding of movement.
 
Improver’s Pilates Designed for physically able clients who have completed a Beginner’s Pilates course and want to focus on improving their functional mobility and stability with more challenging exercises. Also potentially suitable for clients with previous Pilates experience who have completed a private session with us. These classes will integrate contemporary Pilates along with limited classical Pilates, with a view to build core strength whilst maximising pelvic, spinal, hip and shoulder mobility and stability.
 
Classical Pilates Designed for clients who have completed multiple Improver’s Pilates classess and demonstrated an aptitude and desire to challenge themselves. They integrate classical intermediate and advanced exercises with contemporary functional Pilates. These classes are by invite for existing clients or for new clients who have previous extensive Pilates experience and have completed a private session with us.
 
Men’s Pilates Our experience has taught us that men often have specific requirements in a Pilates class. The classes are designed to focus on pelvic, hip and spinal mobility in addition to postural challenges including anatomical improvement to sitting and standing positions. The classes support retention and improvement of core strength and balance in an environment where men needn’t feel conscious about being the only male in the room.

North Norfolk Group Pilates Classes - Time Tables

More Information

Do you offer drop in classes?

As of September 2020 all drop in classes are on hold due to Coronavirus.

Most classes are block bookings only in order to guarantee your space, however, on Wednesdays at 10am and 6pm in Edgefield or 2.45pm at The Studio, plus Friday's 11.15am at The Scout Hut in Blakeney, we offer 'drop in' classes at £12 per session. These classes are open to anyone with prior Pilates experience. An enrolment form must be completed before joining they are subject to availability so you must book in advance. If you are already booked onto a term, then subject to availability, you are able to drop in to any other classes at the price of £8. 

What if I miss a class in my term?

As of September 2020, the ability to make up classes will only be available as an online option until further notice. Due to Coronavirus we are keeping class sizes small and not allowing people to mix classes e.g. a class is see as a 'bubble'.

Should you not be able to make one of your classes, if there is space available, you will be able to make up your missed lesson in another class in the same term. Please check for availability and please note this is limited to 1 make up class per term. It is really helpful for you to tell us in advance if you are unable to make a session within the term as we are then able to offer 'swaps' to other clients that may be in the same position, giving you the opportunity to enjoy more flexibility. If you know you will be away for a few classes then you may wish to consider purchasing a class pass.

Group Classes - what levels are offered?

Daytime and evening mat based classes are offered which cater for all levels of ability.  Mixed ability is just that, however it's not suitable for people that require assistance to get up and down off the floor or for people with ongoing injuries. Gentle Pilates is aimed at men and women over 70 although is suitable for any age and for people with Osteoporosis. In this class, some exercises are carried out using a chair. Level 1 and 2 are beginners level with level 2 being slightly more challenging. Level 3/4 classes are suited to people with either no injuries or medical issues, or issues that are 'old and cold'. If you request to join any class which states Level 3/4 in the knowledge you have any issues as stated above, you must take full responsibilty for yourself and listen to your body. No responsibility can be accepted by Full Motion Pilates for any injuries arising as a result of taking a class or performing exercises which are beyond your capability, or if you haven't followed the instructions or exercise modifications which are offered. 

Is Pilates right for me?

Anyone can benefit from taking regular Pilates classes and you will never be forced to or put into any positions, which are damaging to you or you can’t do. Even if you are super fit, taking regular Pilates classes give you an insight into your body so that you’re able to discover more about yourself. Pilates is all about the quality of movement, not the speed at which you do it. It’s about making adjustments to alignment so that your muscles start to learn the correct recruitment patterns in order to benefit core stability and joint health, thus reducing the occurrence of injuries. If you have any medical conditions or concerns, we will be happy to discuss these, however we are not medical practitioners so will always seek advice from a suitably qualified practitioner with your permission, prior to you commencing any classes.

What are classes like?

Classes are kept to a maximum of 12 but ideally we like to operate with no more than 8 people. We focus on quality of movement and like to ensure you understand the reason for doing each of the exercises you’re being taught. Once you are performing an exercise, your teacher will walk around the room and look to see if you’re performing the exercise to the best of your ability and to help you work towards obtaining your full range of movement and fitness goals. This may mean you are offered verbal, visual or tactile corrections. Please inform us if you are uncomfortable with a hands-on approach, prior to joining. Depending on the client, some people may be asked to perform different exercises or modified versions, which will be more suitable to their safety and on-going health requirements.  If you have any injuries since the last class, please be sure to inform your teacher prior to class starting. If you have any questions about the class or would like further ‘homework’, then please discuss this after the class.

Before Joining a Group Class

We will need you to complete an online enrolment form, which will ensure we are aware of any injury, or medical condition which could affect your ability to take part in a class. It will also allow us to accommodate your requirements in our lessons plans and to offer you guidance on the suitability of certain exercises. 

Booking and payment details

Most classes are term bookings only in order to guarantee your space, however, on Wednesdays in Edgefield at 9.45-10.45 and 5.45-6.45 and at The Studio in Kelling at 2.45-3.45, plus in Blakeney on Friday 11.00-12.00pm, we offer a drop in class at £10 per session. These classes are only available to clients that have either attended a Private 1-1 or other Full Motion Pilates Classes and an enrolment form must be completed before joining. These classes are subject to availability so you must book in advance. Should you not be able to make one of your classes, if there is space available and you have given at least 24 hrs notice, you may be able to make up your missed lesson in another class in the same term (subject to availability and 1 make up per term). For Private Sessions, our 1:1 rate is £40 per hour. We accept payment by cheque (£2 surcharge), made payable to Full Motion Pilates Ltd, or via online banking. Full payment for the remainder of a term is required prior to or on the day of the second class and if you’re making a repeat booking, payment is required at least one week before the start of the next term, in order to reserve your space. If you would like to join part way through a term, this is fine. Please contact us for more details. Most Group Classes are £9 per session and total payment depends on the length of the term – usually 5 or 6 weeks. Online banking details: Account - Full Motion Pilates Ltd, Account number - 23426521, Sort code 20-45-45.

Term Times

Terms are usually 5 or 6 weeks long and in the most part run along with the local school terms. Private sessions can be taken at any time of the year and are subject to teacher availability. Your teacher will advise you at least one week prior to the end of the current term, what the dates and payment will be for the next term.  

 

 

Waiting List

As our classes are small so they do get booked up. However, The Foundation Class, which only runs for 4 weeks, does move people onto the Beginners Class after the 4 weeks if they are ready, so it is likely that available spaces will come around every 4 weeks. We are happy to add you to our waiting list for certain times and days for other classes.

What to wear and bring

Ideally it is best to wear something close fitting. Tighter clothes give an indication of how your body is responding to the exercise you’re performing. Try not to wear anything with a thick waist-band as you’ll find it may dig into to your back when laying down and bring a warm layer, just in case the room is cool. You won’t need to wear shoes or trainers as we like to use our feet and shoes restrict the full movement potential of the foot. We do recommend ToeSox or ToeToe socks or bare feet. Normal socks can also be worn, but unlike the ToeSox and ToeToes, they don’t offer any grip, which can be as annoying as it is dangerous if you slip. If you have long hair, then be mindful that when lying down we will always try and place your head in its neutral position. This means pony tails and buns may hinder you. If you have your own mat then please bring this, otherwise we do have mats and head cushions for you to use. It may be useful to bring a small towel for extra cushioning with you, particularly if you find side lying uncomfortable.

Specialist Sessions

Whether you're into Golf, Tennis, Bowls or any other sport, Full Motion Pilates can offer small specialised 4 week Pilates programmes which are tailored to your chosen sport, helping you to develop core strength and ultimately improve your sporting performance. The increased range of movement that Pilates will give you will result in the potential for longer drives in Golf and improve your movement, power and overall game in Tennis.

 

Private Sessions

Full Motion Pilates offer private classes to individuals to help them meet their specific fitness goals. We offer sessions to clients that find it difficult to make it to a class, or want a more personalised programme that is entirely focused on their body. Small parties or small group sessions are also offered, whether it’s for a hen party, weekend or holiday break and there are a few of you that would like a class, subject to availability, Full Motion Pilates can offer what you need. Please contact us for more information and prices. Please note our cancellation policy.

Cancellation Policy

Refunds to term bookings during a term are only given in exceptional circumstances. Individual classes are non refundable and not transferable among friends/family. Should you be unable to join your usual class on one occasion, it is possible to take an alternative class in the same term, if there is space available. It is not possible to make up missed classes in future terms and all make up's should be requested during the current term. Please note whilst make up's are offered, they are not guaranteed and a maximum of 1 per term is allowed. Any pre booked term, course or private session not cancelled within 48 hours notice of the start date will be charged for in full. If for any reason due to teacher training or illness your class is cancelled, you will either be offered an alternative class or a refund for the individual class. Cancellations to drop in classes will result in a 50% charge being incurred if 24hrs notice is given or 100% charge with less than 24hrs notice or a no show. Class passes will be deducted if you have booked a space and fail to inform us is you are no longer able to attend on that date.
