Productivity

Healthy Workforce

HEALTHY WORKFORCE

Pilates training improves physical fitness for people in sedentary roles. It can also help release pressure and stress, encouraging mental wellbeing.

Research shows staff return to their desks calmer with improved concentration, enhanced problem-solving abilities and better able to focus on the demands of the job.

All these benefits from Pilates can also reduce the number of sick days leading to a more productive workforce. 

Discover better ways of sitting, better posture and breathing techniques, all designed to help maintain health and improve mental focus whilst working.

Many of the exercises are designed so that they can actually be done whilst sitting at a desk.

TESTIMONIALS

REAL LIFE STORIES
“I went out to play in the afternoon medal straight after our pilates session. I ended up with 38 points winning the Division 2 section! I feel a connection with my core muscles playing straight after pilates. A normal stretch before playing does not necessarily stimulate that connection in such an obvious way.”
Gary Ayres, Surbiton Golf Club member
“Really enjoyed yesterday’s class and managed to win my match convincingly, playing 3 shots under my handicap! If that’s the effect of doing Pilates beforehand, then I will become very keen indeed!”
Sally Coryn, Wimbledon Park Golf Club member
“I always thought Pilates was mainly for people who need rehabilitation after injury. Linda helped me understand that correcting the alignment of my joints and focus on moving correctly would help me stay injury free. Linda is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She knows what level to take me to so that I feel that I have achieved something. That’s not easy when you are used to lifting heavy weight.”
Daniel Smethurst, Manager B2B UK&I Professional Services Sales Team, the FT
“Linda’s passion for Pilates is impossible to disguise, and combined with her knowledge of golf, her technique and teaching style are unbeatable. Since I’ve had Pilate’s sessions with Linda, my physical movement has improved dramatically and I’ve seen the evidence in my golf scores.”
Cyrus Shroff, Broadcast Project Manager
“After one session my game has increased greatly. My ball contact, swing and setup feels great. Look forward to more sessions with Linda where exercise is combined with golf tuition.”
Ravinder Lall, Digital Mobile Specialist, Vantage London
