Stretch to the Limits

Stretching is one of the most under-rated exercise mode within our training programmes, often being placed at the end of a class or PT session when time is running out and its true benefits remain undeveloped. Stretch to the limits is a factual and practical workshop that embraces the importance of workouts such as Yoga and Pilates whilst developing exercise ideas for endless stretch workouts.

From birth through to old age our muscular structure changes to such an extent that stretching, along with balanced posture and strength can become the key to not only sports movement but life function.

Stretch to the Limits is run as an in-house instructor training programme. If you would like to book a workshop please email

Getting to the Core of It

Core training has become the main stay of most exercise programmes. Previously the domain of physio’s and a handful of Pilates devotees, the majority of us used to be quite content to be told to simply ‘hold good posture’ or ‘stand tall’ whilst exercising. Research and practice however has shown us that for true functional movement where the human body can work in its most efficient and effective form, we really do need to discover our ‘core’. This workshop will define, explore and help you to develop a true understanding of core training.
