All classes are currently via Zoom
Until the studio re-opens and attending in person resumes, virtual sessions are a powerful way of getting to know your body - to reconnect with it - to enable improvement whether you need to work on your strength, your flexibility, to realign or all of those! The same goes for the mind too as life's challenges can lead us to a point where resources run low and we need to strengthen resilience, to become more flexible in our thinking and to realign with life and others.
To enable top-up practices, I have set up a channel for the studio on YouTube - which is here! The channel will host differently themed Pilates sessions where I will do the class with you and I will continue giving any teaching points that I would mention in regular class.
I have also put up some mindful meditation and relaxation sessions on the channel as it is important that we find some space during our day to allow the mind to relax and perhaps even more so in the current situation. These recordings are a powerful way of the dissipating daily stresses out of our mind and getting mind and body back into a healthy flow.
Please visit the Channel, all sessions are free and, if you like it, please do subscribe! New sessions will continue to be added.
About the Pilates Studio MK
The Pilates Studio MK was founded by Caron in 2000, initially as a centre of excellence to promote (or re-establish) pain-free movement within the body for longevity. Through the utilisation of Pilates exercises taught on a thoughtful and intelligent level, the body, no matter what age, can find a flourishing state in which to reside. This was and continues to be delivered via a deep understanding of the architecture of the human form, in a friendly and caring manner, with a great appreciation that each one of us is unique. The Pilates Studio MK is a bright, modern and fully equipped studio with both the large pieces of Pilates equipment (e.g. Reformer, Cadillac & Ladder barrel) as well as the mat-work equipment. Group, 1:1, duets or trios are offered.
22 Years on...
We live in exciting times with regards to ongoing research into both the body and the mind and how the two are continually interacting - the body affects the mind and the mind affects the body. Over the last ten years, Caron has undertaken not only extra training and qualifications in Pilates and the physiology of the body but also physiology of the human mind. Having gained qualifications to degree level in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, and certification in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT Oxford University) Twenty two years later, the Pilates Studio MK has now become a Mind-Body Wellness Studio. As well as instructing Pilates sessions, Caron also offers sessions for Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy; Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) to empower clients and patients to living a balanced, healthy and fuller life.
