The Use of Pilates

The emphasis is placed on strengthening core muscles and on centred breathing. Simple and precise exercises are performed without forcing or straining the body, helping to relieve stress and tension and in many cases reducing back and joint pain.

Parks runs a series of classes to complement the work of our therapists. These all feature small class sizes, so that tuition can be tailored and given at individual level. Classes are organised in a series of 5 or 6, so that newcomers can be fitted in easily, with the minimum of delay and difficulty.

Pilates Stretches


Parks runs over 14 classes from Monday to Saturday morning, in the morning, afternoon and evening.

STOTT Trained Pilates Instructor Marina Caird is very popular with all her pilates students and leads all the classes at Parks Therapy Centre.
