About Mat Pilates
Founded by Joseph Pilates, this methodology was created to help people enhance their health through a series of dedicated exercises that improve bad posture, shallow breathing, muscular and joint aches & pains, whilst building a greater mind:body awareness, improving core (stomach & pelvic floor) strength and enhancing people's range of motion.
Mat Pilates sessions can include the use of some pieces of matwork equipment, such as:
• Pilates circles (ring)
• Pilates balls
• Light weights
• Resistance bands
• Specialist foam roller
• Rotational discs
• Pilates blocks
About Reformer Pilates*
Reformer Pilates elevates Mat Pilates to a whole new - and exciting - level. Using the Reformer regularly, helps promote quicker strength, flexibility & balance, by allowing the user to engage in more dynamic & target exercises. It's a great method if you have a specific goal in mind, such as reducing back pain, improving core strength or rapidly increasing flexibility.
This bed-like specialist piece of equipment, has a flat platform (called a carriage) on top, where the majority of exercises take place. Depending on your specific needs or targets, the carriage will have a variety of weighted springs attached to it, which allows each exercise to have more - or less - resistance to them. The straps attached to the pulleys means that there is even more exercise progression/possibilities.
The Reformer remains an extremely popular, low-impact way to getting results in your body, fast, and is a super tool in improving people's musculoskeletal health.

What my happy clients say:
I came to Charlie with stiffness in my neck and pain whenever moving it around. After one session Charlie used a wide range of techniques to relieve the tension in my neck, shoulders and mouth! After my first session I felt relaxed, relieved and have a much wider range of mobility in my neck. I get chronic headaches quite often, and I know this is due to the stress I hope in my neck. Charlie has managed to find so many tension points which I didn't know I had. Charlie is lovely, she will always make you feel comfortable and always accommodates any needs you may have. I am so happy with the results from just one session - my posture is so much better and I can't wait to use the different exercises she has given me to further relieve any tension I have.
