About Arc Barrel & Mat Pilates


Classes of 8 people.  This class uses similar exercises in Mat Pilates with the added bonus of the Arc Barrel. During work on spinal alignment, the Arc Barrel’s curvature like shape allows your spine to sequentially roll over it vertebrae by vertebrae, creating a wonderful freedom of movement throughout the entire spine whilst simultaneously providing full back support.  Whilst this is the job the Arc is renowned for, it is an extremely versatile piece of equipment meaning we can use it to create strength and flexibility in the entire body.

What Our Clients Say

"I have  been coming to Gill's Friday mat class for years.  Gill has done wonders at strengthening my back in particular.  The class programme is varied each week to keep it interesting.  The exercises whether challenging or not, are always done safely.  The new online system is great and easy to organise if I ever need to change my class."
