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.

COVID- from 12 April 2021, we are only teaching 1-1 and family groups of up to four.

Pilates Mat Classes

Our Pilates floor-based Mat classes and seated & standing Chair classes use a specialised range of balls, bands, rollers, barrels and other small equipment that are exclusive to dedicated Pilates studios. 

These classes are your first step to a strong, supple and balanced body. Our elite Pilates instructors only ever teach personally to small numbers of students so that you have full oversight and can be safely guided through each workout.

At the moment these classes are VIRTUAL only. So you can do them via Zoom online.


Private and Rehab Sessions

Equipment Pilates (sometimes just refered to as Reformer 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. If you contracted COVID, we will help you recover from fatigue, muscle weaknesses and diminished breathing capability.

COVID- from 12 April 2021 we are running in studio Cheltenham Pilates sessions for individuals and households. We also provide VIRTUAL 1-1 sessions online via Zoom.



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

Pilates for the over 60s, Pilates for the over 70s, Pilates for the over 80s, Pilates for the over 90s- we are just waiting for our senior exercisers to get us into teaching them into their hundreds! (There’s a Pilates pun in that..)


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.

Every instructor is pre- and post-natal exercise qualified and our Cheltenham Pilates team includes a trained midwife and physiotherapist.

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 Virtual 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 Pilates 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 Pilates 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.

My Pilates sessions leave me feeling completely invigorated, I have a strengthened core, improved flexibility and good postural alignment. Each Pilates Reformer 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.

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 Reformer 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.
