"This is a very energetic and dynamic dance and fitness class. We get to do full body stretching as well as core building (planks, push ups, and crunches). Intense but always fun, you leave the class in a good mood!"        

Ludivine Costanzo

"I joined Natalie's fitness class 7 months ago and I haven't looked back! Her classes are always fun and well structured, but also push you to your limits.  I can safely say I have not only improved my fitness but also my confidence whilst making friends along the way. I would recommend her class to anyone!"

Improve mobility & reduce pain....

Flexibility & Stretch Classes

Enhance alignment, posture, performance.

 

Flexibility is the key to a healthy, well aligned body that maximises your performance in other dance and sports disciplines and helps protects you from injury.  Whether you're mobility is restricted from hunching over a laptop every day, your muscles are tight from sports such as running, or you need to hit your splits in dance or martial arts, these classes are invaluable to overall well being.  Stretching also helps elongate your muscles which otherwise tend to bulk up when we exercise making it the perfect aid to over all condition, body comfort and elegance.    

We build strengthening exercises into our classes to help you control and protect your mobility,

be it supporting your back or lifting those developpes.

Body & Soul

From Wellbeing & Mindfulness to Bootcamps & PT sessions

Keeping a balanced and varied movement regime.

Vary your exercise for maximum results and the perfect balance; from the recentering and focused practices of Qi Gong & yoga to the all over body wipe out of a bootcamp or tailored PT session.

Pilates

Strengthen and align the body with this low impact exercise class that will help improve posture, tone and flexibility through a focus on core strength and precise small movements. 

 

By targeting and isolating small muscle groups - often not reached in more explosive classes - you'll increase movement range, body condition, endurance and balance.

Qi Gong & Tai Chi

Release tension, ease anxiety and worry, and feel more empowered and energised in this moving meditation class. Qigong unites gentle, flowing movement, breathing and mindfulness in one simple practice.

 

Learn to activate your “relaxation response," shifting your nervous system from its debilitating fight-or-flight mode into its inner maintenance and self-care state. These classes can be done standing or seated, and all movements can be modified to suit your capability.

 

Perfect for beginners as well as experienced movers and meditators.

Yoga

There are many different flavours of yoga, from mediative, to deep stretch to dynamic.  Working with a range of yoga partners there's something for everyone in the schedule.

From Dynamic Flow and Hatha to Vinyasa, foundational yoga postures are incorporated in a practice to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body.  Breathing technique and meditation can also be incorporated with classes based around slow simple flows or dynamic and rigorous full body workouts.

Our PT and bootcamp sessions combine hard work and fun to help you hit your goals or top up your training.  Programmes can be fully tailored to include pure fitness - like HIIT, Cardio Box, Ab Blast, Kettle Smash -  and our dance fitness programme - Barre Sculpt, Yoga, Pilates, Flex & Flow - and fun accessible dance -from  commercial dance and jazz routines to dance cardio styles.  Select from or combine high energy and high intensity pure fitness, intensive but low impact dance technique based programmes, and dance or dance cardio sessions.  We end with a thorough flexibility and stretch practice, helping you relax, ease muscle pain, and encourage a lean sculpted silhouette and prevent you body becoming bulky.
