Mat Pilates

About our mat Pilates classes

Whilst the studio establishes itself in Hampshire, we are listing most mat classes as ‘mixed-level’ until we determine the demand for different levels.

​We tend to keep class sizes to no more than ​8-10​ people, so you will always receive plenty of personal attention and support in each class should you need it. That is what we pride ourselves on at The Pilates Foundry.

Our mat Pilates offering

Whether you are brand new to Pilates or you have been practicing for some time, there is something for everybody on offer here.

We take great care to introduce you to Pilates the right way, and as you progress, the intensity of sessions increases and we introduce variety on a constant basis.

​90-minute beginner basics workshop

​These workshops are designed for you if you are brand new to Pilates or would like a refresher on the core movements, which form part of much of what we do here at ​The Pilates Foundry.

We welcome you to join one of our workshops

Small equipment circuit class

Mat Pilates is by no means limited to sitting or lying on a mat. If you fancy a challenge then be sure to come along to our small equipment circuit classes - they have a bit of a reputation for waking you up and getting the pulse racing.

Flexible time slots

We offer a range of ​Mat classes along with our ​Reformer / Equipment sessions. If you cannot see a class you are interested in at ​a time that suits you on our current timetable, please email Trish and the team as we will be adding new ​classes, as demand dictates​.

We understand sometimes life gets in the way - but you will quickly learn we pride ourselves on finding ways to accommodate you. We ask that you give us 24 hours notice if you know you cannot make your regular​ class, and we will book you in to a class ​at a more appropriate time.
