Get flexible and strong
It’s never been easier to start your own personal journey with Golf Pilates. You can access recorded videos to work on your flexibility and strength at home. If you have an injury or something specific you want to work on, please don’t hesitate to contact us first.
You can work with an instructor virtually or in the studio. Private sessions help you focus, target muscle groups and change movement patterns. If virtual live group sessions are your thing we’ve got that too! Perhaps join us for a Golf + Pilates trip to Portugal or Greece.
Where to start
You can book an appointment, virtual or face to face, on the link below or go to the Book Now page to send an email. If you prefer to start on your own, scroll down for videos and courses. Pilates is not a quick fix. It works best as a programme and we suggest you set aside time for 5 to 10 sessions to learn the names of the exercises and how to perform them. If you get the bug and continue we’ll promise you that you will feel like a new person!
In 5 sessions you will learn techniques to keep your joints healthy, work the right muscle groups and increase flexibility. Your level of Pilates will depend on your current fitness level, existing injuries and how much time you spend to train the body.
After 10 sessions you will have more in-depth skills and start noticing different muscle tone, improvement in posture and alignment of joints. Linda is also happy to discuss your current golf-swing and any improvements or changes you are trying to make. Book private sessions or group classes to start.

ABC’s of Golf Pilates
A for Alignment
Getting your joints in the right position is essential for a good golf swing. It is also the first thing you look at in Pilates.
B for Breathing
Correct breathing technique will help you connect to your core muscles, relax the body and rotate better in the golf swing.
C for Core connection
Strengthening your core muscles and understanding how the core works with the rest of the spine is essential for longevity.
S for Spine
The most important part of the ABC’S. Pilates challenges spinal positions with leg and arm movements to help improve your game.
Why so important for golf?
Pilates has many benefits including helping to improve posture and reduce the risk of injury, as well as improve your performance.
Pilates breathing stretches the small muscles between the ribs. This is perfect for golfers as we have least flexibility in this area of the spine, stretching them increases a golfer’s ability to rotate.
Confidence on the course
Golfers of all levels have bad days on the course. Shoulders move forward, the head drops, and then the swing goes. Train your body and mind so despite a bad shot you are in control of your posture! You walk tall, focus on your breathing routine and alignment.
Ball striking & distance control
If your ball striking is lacking there could be potential physical causes that could be improved by Pilates exercises. See images of common swing faults.
