Rochdale Pilates & Yoga Studio offers a fitness structure and the positive reinforcement you need, so that you can concentrate on getting your body and mind into the state you desire. See the classes we offer below, and get in touch with us if you have any questions.

Get in Touch

Mat Pilates 
Beginner, Mixed Ability & Advanced

A mat work Pilates class, suitable for all abilities, focusing on a series of movements which incorporate strength, flexibility and mobility. The exercises are progressive and safe, allowing you to work at your own pace with emphasis on technique and individual progress.

Hands on correction is available ensuring you progress through the exercises safely.

Best for;  All levels of ability including beginners and those who have been attending a while.


Reformer Pilates
Bespoke 1-2-1 & Small group

Reformer Pilates is designed to accommodate all levels of skill, strength, and flexibility. From a novice to exercise with back problems to a trained athlete, the reformer is for all bodies.

Reformer Pilates is like a flexibility class, mindfulness session, and total body workout all in one. 

The Reformers gliding carriage and adjustable springs provide resistance and assistance which can help any body regain movement, control and balance. You really have to experience to understand the amazing benefits!

​Best for; Everyone! We want people to feel freedom in their bodies and this style of training is adaptable from rehab through to the elite.


Beginners & Mixed Ability

This is a mixed ability class starting with mobility exercises before building into a flow. Dynamic in nature, this class aims on uniting movement with breath. This class focuses on as we purposefully transition and hold each asana (posture), giving your body time to engage with each muscle and move further into each posture.

Breathing techniques and relaxation will be a regular part of each class as we explore the power of slowing down and moving with grace. 

Best for: This mixed ability class welcomes those with little or lots of yoga experience.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative yoga practice.
In Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time - typically from three to five minutes or longer to target the connective tissues - ligaments and tendons rather than focusing on the muscles. When you stimulate the connective tissue, it can help with flexibility, circulation, and muscle recovery.
Yin yoga can help to balance the nervous system and allow a space to quiet the mind and heal.
