Physiotherapist-led senior Pilates classes

Pilates is an ideal way for older adults to exercise. You might have noticed changes in your mobility, strength, flexibility or balance as you’ve become older.


Pilates improves all these things and there’s always a way to modify so you feel comfortable on any given day. It’s never too late to learn how to move your body more efficiently, improve mobility and build strength with Pilates.

We offer specialised online Older Adults group classes or 1:1 physio-led Pilates classes for seniors on both mat or reformer and they both have great benefits for over 60s. Some Pilates exercises may need to be modified – especially if you have a specific physical issue like osteoporosis – so it’s important that you are assessed properly and taught alternative movements, so you don’t hurt yourself.

All my Pilates instructors are physiotherapists with experience working with older adults, you can be confident that we will understand any pre-existing physical conditions and be able to work safely with you to reach your individual goals.

How to join one of our 60+ Physio-led Pilates classes

If you are a completed beginner, have had surgery or have any pre-existing conditions then we strongly recommend a 1:1 session before starting group classes. An appointment with us can be completed online or in person at our studio. It gives our physiotherapists time to assess your posture, flexibility, core strength, balance and the way you move, so we can understand how to help you reach your goals.

We will get you moving straight away and design a targeted programme of exercises, sent to you with videos, for you to practice.

In a seniors Pilates class, you’ll be introduced to the basic principles of Pilates and you’ll learn some of the key movements and Pilates exercises. Most of the exercises in the Pilates repertoire can modified and gradually built up, so you can work at a level and pace which is comfortable and safe for you.

We run a bespoke service, so whether you call us for a one-off assessment, book into a weekly online Pilates class or a regular private Pilates session, we will always be focusing on your individual needs.

What are the benefits of an older adults Pilates class?

Modified Pilates for older adults offers a low impact way to exercise, which is gentle on your joints, even if you haven’t exercised in a while. With a strong focus on breathing well and the quality of movement, rather than lots of repetitions of each exercise, clinical Pilates is often recommended by healthcare practitioners to older adults.

Pilates exercises help to increase joint flexibility, rebuild strength in the legs and core muscles and improves balance. Physiotherapist-led Pilates can help a wide range of physical problems experienced by older adults including:

  • Low back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Impaired Balance
  • Poor posture
  • Joint stiffness
  • Osteoporosis
  • Stroke
  • Post-operative rehab
