Exercise for all
Pilates based exercise for those looking for a gentle introduction to physical activity
Seated, chair based and mat classes catering for different abilities and needs run by John Rignell, a qualified and fully insured Pilates teacher. He has experience and qualifications in teaching those, who, for whatever reason, are cautious about physical activity but keen to get started.
What class is for me?
Seated: On line via zoom and face to face at Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF. This class is for beginners and those who do not wish to exercise standing up. It is exclusively seated and involves a variety of exercises designed to build strength, increase flexibility and improve coordination without causing undue fatigue.
Chair based: On line via zoom and face to face at Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF. This is a class for those happy to work standing up and sitting down. It includes additional exercises that involve standing and working on balance.
Mat work: On line via zoom and face to face at Friends Meeting house, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF. This is a class for anyone interested in a more conventional Pilates session. Whilst gentle in content, you do need to be confident about getting down on to the floor (and up again!)
Classes take place via zoom and face to face (numbers limited) at Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF from Wednesday September 8th. The room we are using is on the first floor. It is accessible via a stair lift should that be necessary. Please use the get in touch button to reserve a space and find out more.
John runs a friendly, relaxed class for people looking for a gentle introduction to physical activity. If you find getting up from a chair more difficult than you used to, if the idea of going to a gym does not appeal or if you need to resort to scissors to open a bag of crisps, you may find these Pilates based exercises helpful. No need to hunt out those leotards or running shorts, just bring some enthusiasm and wear comfortable clothes. He promises never to shout at you for leaving your PE kit at home.
Use the contact page to get in touch with John. He will then send you further details about how to log in etc.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
Face to face classes are £3 a session to cover the cost of the room. Participants are welcome to make a donation to Meeting House funds.
