At Balance we are incredibly fortunate to work right alongside Pilates Sanctuary – we have done so for many years – who have a fantastic studio within our facility. Pilates is an excellent practice for many of our clients within the process of rehabilitation – especially it seems when it comes to recovery from episodes of back and neck pain. They have a fantastic eye for movement, spotting inaccuracies and imbalances, and then working on them with precision and patience until awareness and control are achieved.

“At Pilates Sanctuary we help people achieve pain- free flowing movement.”

Pilates Sanctuary have a fully equipped Pilates Studio located on the first floor of our Clapham facility. We work very closely with their team to provide seamless input so our clients can increase their control, develop fluid integrated movement. Our own movement team can work concurrently with a client to make the connection between Pilates mat and machine work and the movement patterns of their day to day life, sports, endurance and outdoor activities.

Pilates is an exercise method that through a series of adaptable exercises on the mat and on specialised equipment focuses on creating:

  • a stable centre;
  • joint mobility and stability;
  • a fluid elongated spine;
  • flowing functional movements;
  • dynamic strength and flexibility;

all of which work to restore the body to balance and to good functional movement whoever you are.

The use of equipment and the way in which Pilates exercises and principles can be adapted make it a suitable method of exercise for everyone.

Established in 2006, Pilates Sanctuary specialises in:

  • rehabilitation,
  • maternity care and women’s health
  • working with dancers,
  • older members of the Clapham community
  • wellbeing and fitness.

Small groups and one to ones are offered in the Pilates Sanctuary studio and larger classes in Balance’s larger class studio.
