Give your team the opportunity to step away from their work and take some well-deserved time out to invigorate the mind and body with our workplace Pilates class. Whether you are a small or large company looking for a weekly class or a one-off session as part of a company away day we have a range of packages to suit your needs. Pilates is an excellent enhancement to the workplace and many employers now recognise the many health benefits of fitness classes on site, at a time that is convenient for employees.

Wellness classes can assist in providing:

- boost both physical and mental health.
By providing staff with the ability to enjoy wellness activities, you are able to show them how much they are valued, offered alongside a comprehensive package that can help build a culture that really looks after its staff. This will bring strength to your business, staff feel more motivated if they are looked after and can assist in making you stand out against your competitors.
Offering activities before, after or during work hours such as an allocated lunch hour can assist employees by making their lives a little easier, saving them money and time that may be challenging to fit in around their busy home/work life. Workplace Pilates classes cost as little as £5 per person, please see our pricing page.
“VCLS wanted to promote healthy wellbeing amongst its employees and offered Pilates as an option. I knew Bonnie from going to her evening classes and thought she would be the perfect person to help us with this activity. The classes have gone down very well. People really feel the benefit of the movement and stretching when they are sitting at a desk all day. It gives them more energy and helps to relieve those aches and pains. Quite often people with busy home lives don’t have time to go out in the evenings, especially if they work late or have children to look after, so the lunchtime sessions work perfectly. Bonnie is an excellent teacher with a very friendly personality. She is very professional in her manner and makes sure everyone is able to do the moves according to their ability.” Sam Gardiner, Manager UK Operations
- A suitable space that can accommodate up to 12 Pilates mats – this could be a meeting room, staff room room or communal areas. This area can be carpeted or hard wood floor.
- Staff to sign up to take part! You must nominate a key contact, member of staff assigned internally to coordinate interest.
If you are not sure if your staff would be interested, why not do a poll to gauge interest or book a taster session to see what employees think and decide if it’s something you would like to implement on a more regular or long term basis.
