Based on simple but smart principles, Pilates Reformer and Equipment classes give profound results. And as you will only ever have three others with you, it’s always personalised group training.
We train you across the full range of exercises that fine-tune your mechanics and challenge your dynamics, whether you are an athlete or a first-timer. It’s always fun.
Our Pilates floor-based Mat classes and standing Barre classes use a specialised range of balls, bands, rollers, barrels and other small equipment that are exclusive to dedicated Pilates studios.
With plenty of mirrors to guide you into position, these classes are your first step to a strong, supple and balanced body.
Equipment-based Pilates is a preferred method of rehabilitation by medical professionals worldwide. As an adaptable and non-impact form of exercise, tailored Pilates sessions are ideal for those in pain, pre- or post-surgery or suffering chronic injuries.
Two highly experienced physiotherapists, Katie and Philippa, treat clients from One Grove. Both are advanced musculoskeletal practitioners and acupuncturists with a valued hands-on approach. They are skilled at diagnoses and will directly advise One Grove’s Pilates instructors on specifically tailoring your exercise sessions to suit your remedial needs, if you so wish.
Yoga is a physical practice through a variety of poses and sequences which simultaneously releases tension and focuses concentration. Our Yoga classes offer a wealth of benefits: physically, emotionally and mentally. You should feel youthful and reinvigorated, calmer and stronger after class.
Yoga and Pilates suit any age- it’s never too late to start! ONE GROVE’s Gentle classes are directed towards older adults who have grown out of the high street gym environment. With our range of equipment and props, we can make you comfortable exercising and then challenge you to stay.
We welcome Pre & Post Natal clients but as every body and every pregnancy is different, talk to us before you come in! We always want to encourage your fitness and to maintain your health simultaneously but this balance is finer when you are having or have had a baby.

Regular massage helps alleviate muscular pain and improve range of motion. Research is also showing that physical contact can stimulate the immune system, lessen depression and lower blood pressure. Charlotte offers various styles of full body or head/shoulder massage at ONE GROVE according to your needs.
Read what some of our lovely clients have to say about us:
Pilates has given me more strength, stability and body confidence than I ever thought possible. The equipment has helped me to learn more about my body’s capabilities so that I can counteract any weaknesses, allowing me to live life to the fullest.
Pilates has helped me to become more supple and more aware of my body posture. Moreover my back issues have improved as my core muscles have developed.
As well as strengthening my body, my emotional state is also strengthened. I cannot recommend Yoga highly enough, it has transformed me!
After starting Yoga, I quickly noticed improvement in both my flexibility and core stability, which has definitely improved my performance in other sports, including my triathlon training.
Pilates is the exercise I look forward to every week. Being made aware of the muscles we use, the importance of keeping them active resulting in more flexibility, stability & strength makes Pilates the best form of exercise I have experienced.
Our needs were carefully assessed, we are monitored session by session, and our goals are adjusted as we progress- and we have certainly seen progression! A friendly, enjoyable and appropriately challenging environment.
Everybody’s body is different and through Yoga I have definitely begun to love and appreciate my body more. I am for ever thankful to the adaptability of Yoga, allowing all ages to enjoy it.
Every teacher and therapist at ONE GROVE partners in the running of the studios and develops what we can bring to you. We all have internationally recognised certifications, specialist knowledge in our fields and a desire to promote your well-being.
