Pop-Up Pilates classes in Oxford are varied to allow you to focus on all your key postural and core muscles. We offer a mix of stretches, strengthening, toning and balance exercises for a leaner, fitter and stronger body.
Pop-up Pilates offers matwork Pilates classes in Oxford – in Pilates your own body provides the resistance without the aid of springs, pulleys and levers, working against gravity to build strength and develop flexibility.
Exercises take place in standing, sitting or on mats. Occasionally small pieces of equipment are used, and exercises can be adapted to challenge, progress and focus on your individual goals or for those with pain or joint problems.
Classes are split into blocks of 8. Each week, as you get stronger and more flexible, the exercises are gently progressed. Class blocks are operated on a rolling basis with new participants joining in week 1 – 2 when spaces are available. We run a variety of ability classes so you are sure to find a class that suits you!
Our Mixed ability classes aim to cater for everyone. Classes use the Pilates principles in a variety of exercises for control, flexibility and strength. Pop-Up Pilates mixed ability classes provide exercise progressions and variations during the sessions, so those looking for more of a challenge, or indeed a simpler and less challenging experience, are able to progress at their own pace.
These classes are suitable for everyone! It is recommended that beginners in these classes should have a pre-class assessment (more info below). These classes are suitable for those with back, neck or other joint problems. Post and antenatal clients may also be able to attend these classes but please chat with us prior to joining for more information.
Specifically tailored to the needs of those just starting Pilates, with a Pop-Up Pilates Beginners class there’s no experience required!
These classes focus on finding and developing core muscles with basic strengthening exercises and stretching. During the programme, exercises gradually get more difficult as you get stronger and more flexible. New exercises are introduced and old exercises progressed at your own pace.
These classes are recommended for beginners to Pilates and those more limited by back or neck problems, or anyone looking for a slower paced, relaxing class.
Specifically tailored to individuals who have some previous Pilates experience and can find and control pelvis neutral. Strengthening exercises are given with optional progressions to allow each individual to work at their own pace and level.
These classes are recommended for those with some Pilates experience who would like to progress at a steady pace.
These higher-level classes are tailored for old hats at Pilates! Exercises are designed to challenge strength, balance and control. Individuals can work at their own level and tailor their programme, but all exercises require a good foundation in all core muscle groups.
This one-to-one time covers the basic Pilates principles and teaches you how to correctly use your core muscles. It is an opportunity for the instructor to get to know you and any health challenges so that your exercises can be better adapted to your needs. With pre-class assessments you will get more out of your Pop-up-Pilates classes.
Pre-class assessments are open to all new participants to Pop-up-Pilates classes. A pre-class assessment is particularly important if you are a beginner, have a health problem (such as back pain) or if you have recently had a baby. If you are pregnant and wish to join a general class this is essential.
Pre-class assessments are £20 for those starting an 8-week course, £30 for all others.
