Dance Fitness with Joanna Douglas
The Dance Fitness class we offer is a group exercise class incorporating Ballroom and Latin dance steps. It is an aerobic workout, divided into different tracks that provide peaks and troughs of intensity. Classes are in a relaxed atmosphere where you can let your inhibitions go and learn some new moves. No need to book, just turn up and join in.

Pilates with Joanna Douglas
The Pilates method is a mind-body centring technique that emphasises the importance of beginning from a central core of stability. From the central core, the Pilates method works by adjusting the intensity of each exercise through the use of differing length levers and resistance. Combine this with appropriate breathing control and the essence of the mind-body technique that is Pilates is evident. Pilates is based on the following eight principles; breathing, concentration, control, centring, precision, flow, integrated isolation and routine.
Please note places in Pilates classes are subject to availability and must be booked in advance with class sizes strictly limited to 12 people.
