Pilates Equipment Classes

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.

Pilates Mat & Barre Classes

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. We also offer a Seated class for those who are less able to get up and down from the floor.

With plenty of mirrors to guide you into position, these classes are your first step to a strong, supple and balanced body.

Private and Rehab Sessions

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. People suffering pathologies such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Immune System disorders as well as people undergoing cancer treatments also enjoy the non-impact strength of Pilates workouts.

Yoga Classes

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.



Pilates suits any age- it’s never too late to start! Our Gentle Mat and Equipment 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.


Pre and Post Natal

We welcome Pre & Post Natal clients into our classes 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. Because we only run small classes, you are safe and fully over-seen at One Grove.

Read what some of our lovely clients have to say about us:

It wasn’t until I started doing Pilates that I actually started to understand my body. It reaches far beyond the excellent weekly sessions in that, whatever I’m doing, I am much more conscious about how I move my body. My posture is better, my gait is better. My body looks better and it feels stronger.

With a busy work and travel schedule Pilates sessions are a much needed workout. The Reformer is a fantastic way to work key muscle groups without high impact intensity and a unique way to build core strength.

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!

My sessions leave me feeling completely invigorated, I have a strengthened core, improved flexibility and good postural alignment. Each class gives me a strong sense of well being and even after surgeries & a recent long absence, I have been able to return to my sessions and see results within a few weeks.

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.

Emma Bell

Emma Bell

Yoga Teacher

Emma trained as a professional ballet dancer for 6 years and it was on this journey that she was introduced to yoga as a form of rehabilitation through Ambra Vallo. The time she spent with Ambra was transformational beyond measure, in ways that unlocked her desire to set herself free from self-doubt and follow her longing for a life embodying yoga.
She has practiced many forms of yoga over the years including Ashtanga, Rocket, Jivamukti, Kundalini, Iyengar but the dancer within found her home in the beautiful practices of Dharma and Vinyasa Flow yoga.
Her classes are graceful, challenging and inspired by the devotional, heart opening practice of Dharma. There is a reason that you are here in this place, at this time. Emma’s classes inspire you to delve within and focus on your yearning for personal meaning with Vinyasa Flow Classes centred around heart opening, twisting and a touch of the unknown.
