Pilates in the Workplace

Offering Pilates for your employees can offer so many benefits. Get in touch with us about adding Pilates to your wellbeing programme or if you’d like us to teach a group of you in your workplace


Pilates To Your Workplace

Our bodies were designed to move, so spending several hours a day sitting at a desk or in front of a computer can contribute to: postural problems, back aches, joint stiffness and a general feeling of lethargy and brain fog. Pilates can help prevent your team from experiencing these problems and for those who already do… Pilates can go a long way towards managing the pain and realigning the body to eventually overcome some of these postural issues.

An estimated 137.3 million working days were lost due to sickness or injury in the UK in 2016. This is equivalent to 4.3 days per worker… The second most common reason for absence (behind coughs and colds) was  musculoskeletal problems (including back pain, neck and upper limb problems) at 30.8 million days (22.4%).

We can offer Pilates or Yoga classes at your workplace and tailor the level to the needs of your team. These sessions can be 45 – 60 minutes long, but with a whole day of feeling better for your team. All we need is a meeting room or appropriate space to place some mats and some willing colleagues. 

Don’t just take our word for it…

“Kelly is a personable, attentive and highly professional practitioner. Kelly tailors her classes to suit all abilities, always offering adjustments and alternatives, which allows everyone to feel at ease during their practice. Our Tuesday yoga sessions are such a positive start to the morning and the staff always leave rejuvenated and ready to take on the day ahead”
