Mat Pilates

All of our mat Pilates classes focus on establishing and reinforcing a strong basic foundation for the fundamentals of Pilates and connection between the powerhouse and the rest of the body.

Reformer Pilates / Studio Equipment

Reformer based Pilates is great for those clients who have either taken a minimum of 3-5 private sessions or have previous experience. These classes will have a flow and order so be prepared to keep moving!

Barre Classes

Barre work includes both slow and fast exercises, which both serve to strengthen muscles. Slow exercises are typically performed first, to stretch and warm up muscles, and to focus on proper body form, whereas fast exercises condition dancers to maintain precise ballet technique while moving.

Private Pilates Sessions

Our private Pilates classes are ideal for beginners.

Private sessions are an effective way to learn Pilates tailored just to your body. Our instructors devote undivided attention to your specific needs and develop a class specific to your optimum results, working with the full range of equipment.

Duet Pilates Sessions

Bring a friend along to train side by side and split the cost!

Duet sessions provide a more economical way of semi-private training, while maintaining most of the advantages of private sessions. The key is to find a partner with a similar fitness level to yours.

Pre & Post Natal Mat Pilates

This class is for clients who have previous Pilates Experience, are in good general health and have Doctor’s permission. It is not for Mothers before 8 weeks after a Normal Delivery and 12 weeks for a Caesarean Delivery. Babies are permitted if secure in a Baby Carrier and not Crawling yet.

Mindfulness & Meditation

A Mindful Journey guided through Breath exercises to calm the mind, release negativity and find a sense of peace. An opportunity to meet like minded people and have a chance to take care of yourself.

Sports Massage Therapy

Tara’s Diploma is from the London College of Massage in 2013 in Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Massage with 2 years work experience there.

He went on to Study at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM), Btech 5 course and also Myofascial Release at Regents University.

Ballet Classes

*BRAND NEW*

Ballet classes for 5-7 year olds and 7-12 year olds every Tuesday during school term time.

Ballet classes for adults every Saturday afternoon.

Bone Density

Bone Density is a class that has elements of Barre and all exercises are performed with weights. There's a standing part with loads of squats, plies and unilateral work, and a part on the mat which again is mostly performed with weights. This class builds strength in the bones by working on loading muscles with the small weights and is a great way to get stronger bones and more defined muscles.

HIPP® (High Intensity Power Pilates)

HIP Pilates® 50 (because 50 minutes is enough) is a non-stop class intended for the hard core Pilates fan, who desires a more intense cardio workout without losing the essence of the Pilates principles.
Each session is specifically structured to provide an all over body workout. Progressive choreography is incorporated to improve balance and co-ordination.

Jumpboard Pilates

Adding a Jumpboard to our Reformers brings additional plyometric and cardio benefits. The Jumpboard workout will challenge your muscles and your body awareness.
This is not a class for complete beginners; to make the most of it you should be reasonably body-aware, and feel familiar with Reformer exercises.

Anne-Marie

"I joined the Surbiton Pilates Studio Reformer Classes several months ago as recommended by my Osteopath. The Reformer Pilates sessions have helped me recover from a very painful frozen shoulder and improve strength in my knees. My posture has improved and my arms, abs & legs are nicely toned.”

Marie-Noëlle

Surbiton Pilates Studio is a great place, the atmosphere is bubbly and friendly. Dorie is patient, supportive and most of all fun. She articulates the moves so that I get the best out of each session. After years of trying, I’ve finally nailed some of them and I’m seeing the results too. Thanks Dorie.

Carol J

As an avid spinner and runner, the thought of sitting down on a mat for 60 minutes was unthinkable at the start, but Pilates really has transformed my way of looking at exercise and my training routine. I feel stronger, have better posture and better tone… it is all thanks to Surbiton Pilates.
