April

Mat Pilates : Evening 6 week Block

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date: 2nd April at 18:30 to 19:30
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £60pp 6 week block

This is a weekly mindful, mixed ability, mat-based Pilates class to keep you feeling mobile and strong and to teach you how to move well and healthily.

Each class offers a gentle full body workout at a pace that keeps you relaxed and safe. Sometimes we will add small props like foam rollers, mini balls, bands and light weights to our practice to offer you a rich movement experience both for your brain and body. There will always be options for you to modify an exercise to the right level for you. The group will be small with no more than 6 participants, meaning lots of individual attention to ensure a great quality of movement.

If you are experiencing pain, are managing an injury or health condition you will usually be required to attend a 1-1 session first. 

When you sign up for the 6-week block for this class you will also be entitled to a 20% discount on any 1-1 Movement/Coaching or Manual Therapy sessions with me during the time of the block. 

There may be availability for a drop-in option of £12 per class. Please contact us directly if you would like to drop in.

Release and Restore - The Myofascial Mobilisation Class

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date:  11th April 19:15 to 20:45
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £15pp

This popular class will mobilise and relax your socks off. You will be guided through some simple breathing and relaxation exercises to calm your system, find focus and tune into the state of your connective tissue. We often believe our muscles to be tight and try to stretch them off. Yet we do not seem to get much effect from all the stretching. Most of the time it is actually the fascia that our muscles are wrapped up in that is tight and inflexible and makes us feel stiff, achy and immobile. This class will take you through a range of release and mobilisation exercises that will reach and target your connective tissue in ways you never have been able to with conventional stretches and exercises. You will find these movements and releases comfortable, satisfying, relaxing. Afterwards, you will feel powerfully different as you experience a much healthier state of your connective tissue all around and through your body. Everyone is welcome. 

If you suffer from injuries or health conditions contact Kristin for advice if this class is suitable for you.

Testimonials from previous classes:

"Thank you very much again for your wonderful class on Friday. I think I got more release in those 90 minutes than from any other therapy session over the last 3 years. So I'm very keen to return." Gerald H.

"I feel great after the workshop. I had a very stiff shoulder and hip before and they are both much better. Even having gone to a gig last night and standing for hours which usually means a very painful hip the following day!" Kate K.

May

Pilates Studio Club

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date:  Every Thursday in May 13:30 to 14:30
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £60pp (4 block sessions)

This class will run every Thursday in May at 1.30 pm with a maximum of 3 participants. Pilates Studio Club is a great opportunity for anyone who:

  • would like an individual Pilates program, tailored specifically for their posture, weaknesses, rehab focus or goals.
  • would like to benefit from working with the Pilates apparatus, such as the reformer, trapeze table, combo chair, mini-arc as well as small equipment and mat.
  • is looking for a more affordable option than 1-1 sessions.
  • would like to join a mat class, but feels that based on an injury or health condition they need a tailored program, that suits them.
  • is seeking measurable progression.
  • wants to have a new and different pilates practice experience.

When you first join Pilates Studio Club you will get a discounted 1-1 session, in which we discuss your individual goals and needs. This may also include a postural and movement assessment. I will then put an initial program of exercises together for you and give you an introduction to the equipment and the exercises in your program.

After this session, you can then attend the weekly Pilates Studio Club class, in which you go through the exercises on your program card with some support and direction from me. There will be up to 3 other people in the studio with you, doing the same.
