Classes

A motivating and energising class based at the ballet barre that will challenge every single muscle in your body. No dance experience required.


BarreBelles is a Pilates based class that incorporates segments of challenging exercises that work your legs, bum, upper body and core. It is a motivating and energising class that works every single one of your muscles incorporating many different exercises. These include leg work at the ballet barre, working with hand weights for upper body strength, stability balls for sculpting and toning, mat work for the abdominal muscles and we end the class with a yoga inspired stretch. This class ticks all the boxes if you want long lean and toned muscles, a better posture and improved flexibility. All equipment provided, bring your own mat if you wish. Please let me know of any health issues prior to class.

Pilates

The beauty of Pilates is that anybody can do it. A mat based class that increases core strength which will in turn help improve flexibility, co-ordination, build a stronger back and over time will create a better posture.


Flexibility and strength can decrease as we get older for many reasons. For example a desk job means you are sat down most of the day, a manual job could mean heavy lifting and repetitive movements - this can affect your posture which in turn creates imbalances in your body. Ultimately we end up with pain and stiffness in our joints and muscles, this is where Pilates can help. Pilates helps to re align the body and will create a strong core which will give you a stronger back. Joseph Pilates himself once said that you are only as old as your spine. This is a gentle class on the mat and alternatives are given so is suitable for anyone. You can bring your own mat if you wish or I can provide you with one if not. Please let me know of any health issues prior to class.

Don't worry if you have no co-ordination, come and give it a try. It's all about having fun! I incorporate several dance rhythms from around the world in each class. You can work at your own level at all times, do as much or as little as you like. Please let me know of any health issues prior to class.

About Me

Kate Corbett

My name is Kate Corbett and I am a fully qualified fitness instructor with REPS Level 3 status


(find me on the REPS website, my number is R0086101. I initially trained as an Exercise to Music Instructor way back in 2002 through the YMCA and shortly after qualified in Step, Aqua, Studio Resistance, Cardio Kick and Spinning. I then decided in 2004 that I wanted to add Pilates to my list of qualifications. I was intrigued to learn if the hype I was hearing about Pilates was true as I had began to suffer with lower back problems myself. Nearly 10 years on and several Pilates classes later I still don't have any problems in my lower back! In early 2011, I qualified in teaching Health Related Exercise For Children prior to delivering theory and fitness sessions to obese families and their children. I discovered during delivering these sessions that exercise should be all about having fun, if your not enjoying it, then you won't want to do it. That is when I trained to be a Zumba instructor and I haven't looked back since!! I pride myself in trying to get participants to get the most out of their class experience with me. I encourage you only to work at the ability that is suitable for YOU. I have a wide range of clients, some that have been coming to me for years to some that have only joined me recently. I treat everyone equally and make everybody feel welcome. My aim is for you to leave the class with a smile on your face, come along and see for yourself ......
