What are the best Pilates classes in London?
We believe that the best Pilates classes in London should offer superior quality, individualised attention and price. Our business model is based on small, intimate, attention to detail classes.
This means that your instructor should be educated, qualified and certified in Pilates, and have experience. Having said this, many Pilates studios in London offer Pilates classes, but their instructors are not necessarily qualified in Pilates. Yes, you read correctly. Some “Pilates” studios train their instructors in-house on a crash course and teach them a few circuit-type exercises on the equipment. The exercises are usually not found in the Pilates repertoire and you will be lead to believe that you are learning Pilates. Not only you will be missing out on the benefits of Pilates, but f you then go to a Pilates class anywhere else, you will be lost.
At Core Kensington our instructors are educated and certified through STOTT PILATES® the worlds most recognised Pilates educational institution. You will be assured to be learning the Pilates classical repertoire. STOTT PILATES® is a refined method that includes modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation– making it one of the safest and most effective methods available.
Would you rather be in a class of 10 people or 4? You are much more likely to receive much more attention in a very small class that in a large group. Most studios in London offer large group classes that can accommodate anywhere from 10-15 people. This means that it will be much more difficult for your instructor to pay close attention to what you are doing.
We offer small classes that feel like semi-privates. With only up to 4 participants in class, you will get a lot more attention and your form will improve, conversely allowing you to improve and progress much faster. Remember that progression in Pilates is not about lifting more weights or adding more spring tension. Progression in Pilates is about being able to perform more complex movements as a result of increased joint mobility, increased muscle strength, increased joint stability and coordination. If this is the reason why you want to do Pilates, come visit us and find out why our instructors are able to give you more attention in our small group classes.
In order to offer lower prices, most Pilates studios in London must have higher numbers of participants in their classes. There is no way larger studios can afford to run Pilates classes with a low count of participants. Although price should be competitive, price often reflects the quality the service or product. In order to maintain prices very low, some services might sacrifice quality. Core Kensington offers very competitive prices if you are serious about your results. We offer very competitive prices for our loyal clientele who wish to purchase larger blocks of classes and stay committed to their workouts.
It may seem that our prices are higher than average if you pay class by class. If you think of the quality of the service you are receiving having exclusivity, attention to detail and personalised attention, our prices become quite competitive.
At Core Kensington we believe that we offer The Best Pilates Classes in London in the Bayswater/Queensway, Paddington area.
