Our story so far

Rochdale Pilates & Yoga Studio is a Pilates, Fitness and Yoga Studio in the heart of Rochdale.

Your individual attention in our small classes will encourage you to restore balance, challenge the body & calm the mind.

At RP&Y we have over 23 years of fitness experience and most recently, fitness presenting. Collectively our team provide a wide range of specialist sessions including; mat Pilates, back care, pre and post natal, yoga, reformer Pilates, fitness conditioning, personal training and so much more.

The RP&Y journey began when our founder Mrs Gillian Thomas opened the doors of the first Pilates studio in the area and started to teach the good folk of Rochdale how to care for their spine and recover from injury.

The first of her kind, a trailblazer of Pilates, reformer and all things 'back care', who along the way took many other 'would be instructors' under her wing. She guided & encouraged them through the start of their Pilates journey and onwards towards helping others.

Over the years RP&Y has experienced many changes, we are always developing and improving our skills to remain current, safe and committed, bringing our members the best practice we can offer.

This has never been more poignant than the last 12 months. We brought together our team, our members & the internet to create the RP&Y Online Virtual Studio where we started to deliver directly into your home, helping to keep you moving and motivated throughout 2020 and now well into 2021.

We now embrace our new platform allowing us to deliver a blend of studio based sessions alongside our online options, providing our members with the ability to participate from the comfort and convenience of your own home or join us in our comfortable, relaxing little sanctuary - the choice is yours.

We extend our warm, inclusive welcome to all, our supportive community is the reason many join & the reason many never leave.

If that were not enough we also offer a range of packages & pricing to suit you.

Remember "It's all about balance"

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.
