Pilates can help you whatever your age

PILATES ABC Henley is owned by local resident Alyth Yealland.

PILATES ABC Henley is owned by local resident Alyth Yealland.

“Pilates is such a valuable tool for all ages — including those over 80,” says Alyth. “I am lucky to have such a fulfilling job. My reward is seeing the weekly changes in my clients’ posture and movement patterns.”

On a personal level Alyth, now 61, has never felt so supple, fit and strong. She believes in the importance of teaching and regularly attends courses and workshops to increase and improve her knowledge.

Classes are small to ensure a good teacher-client ratio. Alyth offers group matwork and private sessions for all levels of fitness for both adults and children (she is DBS-registered).

Other benefits include flexibility, preventing injury, alleviating joint and back pain, boosting sports performance and relaxation.

Alyth teaches sessions for children, antenatal and postnatal clients, balance, diastasis recti (separated tummy muscles), arthritis, breathing, falls prevention, hip and knee replacements, osteopaenia/osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and scoliosis.

Pilates ABC classes run in Henley, Crazies Hill, Hurley, Knowl Hill and Sonning Common. Beginners are welcome.

A free group matwork taster is available — plus a special 10 per cent discount for all new clients signing up in August and September off their first block of pilates.
