Our Wellness & Pilates Programmes
At De Ville’s Studio, we offer a variety of wellness & pilates programmes to suit people of any age, beginners and intermediates alike. Learn more about how we can help you below.
Pilates & PHIT
Pilates is a form of mental and physical conditioning that can help improve poor posture, reduce low back pain, increase flexibility and relieve stress and tension. All workouts will contain a range of standing and floor exercises making them a perfect way to improve our general wellness and a great addition to your existing fitness training . Choose a Stretch & Tone class for a more mainstream workout or the more energetic PHIT (Pilates Hi-Intensity Interval Training) if you are looking for a more dynamic session.
Sit To Be Fit
Sit To Be Fit is a seated program designed to promote physical and mental well-being for those who have difficulty with mobility. Choose a lively workout to music and add small equipment like balls and bands for added challenge, or opt for a gentle chair-based routine such as T'ai Chi Qigong - great for promoting mobility, as well as reducing stress, anger and anxiety.
If you work in a care home why not speak to your activity coordinator and request chair-based fitness sessions for your residents.
Step & Fitball (Exercise to Music)
Step & Fitball are high energy, low impact cardio & conditioning classes that get your heart pumping! The cardio workout helps improve your general fitness levels, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and burn fat, while the conditioning element increases muscle endurance and bone strength. Add some great music and a fun atmosphere and they are a fantastic way to get fit and lift your mood! Although we are exercising to music these are not 'dance' classes but that doesn't mean you can't 'bust a move' if you are so inclined!!
T'ai Chi is a martial art form that has evolved into a popular exercise discipline suitable for young and old alike, and it can be adapted for clients with mobility issues. Classes are generally made up of a series of 'forms' and 'gigong' (pronounced chi gung) and combine deep breathing and meditation with slow and precise movement that is gentle on muscles and joints. Whilst it is not supported by scientific evidence at the moment, many clients have found that it helps to improve balance, movement, circulation and coordination, and can also be incredibly effective in helping to improve mental acuity and focus and in reducing stress and anger.
Ante-natal & Post-natal Exercise
Exercising during and after pregnancy is a fantastic way to help you cope with the changes to your body that inevitably occur. It can help to reduce back pain, maintain or increase strength and general fitness levels, manage mood swings, help you with labour and make it much easier to return to fitness afterwards. Joining a class of other mums-to-be is also a great way to build up a support network too - not only can you encourage each other, share information and help one another with information and support after baby is born but you will be establishing friendships for yourself and for your newborn baby that can last a lifetime!
Personal Training, 1:1 & Small Group Sessions
If you have a specific fitness/weight management goal in mind, a special event you want to be ready for or you just don't want or are unable to join mainstream classes then Personal Training, 1:1 or Small Group sessions are ideal. Workouts are tailored to your (or your group's) specific needs, with regular reviews and plenty of support and variety to keep you motivated and on-target. They are also an excellent way to add an additional element to your existing training programme. These sessions can be booked as one-off classes to put you back on track or prepare you for general classes, or as longer blocks of sessions aimed at your own personal goal.
KickStart Weight Management & Wellness
KickStart is a 'real world', sustainable and fun way to manage and maintain your weight and wellness. Whether you choose our short KickStart detox or starter challenges or a much longer programme to change your mindset and make healthy eating and exercise a more established and intuitive way of life you will enjoy the support of your KickStart coach and other like-minded people to make those healthy choices and stay on-track.
