Having discovered Pilates could improve her own daily life, Sammie launched 4EverPilates aiming to deliver inclusive Pilates classes within Dorchester and the surrounding villages across Dorset. Gentle, effective, quality classes are bought to rural areas to improve access for those less mobile or time pressured. Classes are tailored by client need and gently introduce the participant to Joseph Pilates’s Principles.
Joseph Pilates originally founded his Pilates Studio in New York with his wife Clara, in the 60’s. Since that time knowledge of the human body has progressed significantly. Although Joseph Pilates original moves are performed at 4EverPilates, they are broken down into much more manageable exercises. By ‘deconstructing’ the exercises it is possible to ‘layer’ them back up, working with a level to challenge the participant, safely and effectively.
At 4EverPilates we believe in working carefully, applying the Pilates Principles, to ensure true benefit. Working in this way significantly reduces, and hopefully eliminates, the chance of causing the body any stress or strain. Each client is encouraged to work at their own level while challenging themselves effectively. With an emphasis of precision, quality and control clients develop a deeper understanding of body awareness. This awareness can be applied throughout day to day activities to strengthen the core, reduce back pain and generally improve quality of life.
All clients are screened and are asked to disclose any condition or injury before they attend the classes. Exercises are then adapted and modified to suit the participants need.
4EverPilates welcomes all feedback to help improve class structure.
