Soma Pilates

Soma Pilates with Jane McDonald…

is feeling good about yourself and others through the practice of movement by releasing suppressed emotions, encouraging the body to rest, repair and then strengthen. Essentially we get out of our mind and in to our body, creating a continuous space to be free to live the lives we choose.

Soma Pilates integrates the principles developed by Joseph Pilates of the centre, alignment, flow, focus and breathe with the exploration of movement (Moshe Feldenkrais) and the exciting functional training of elastic matrix of myofascial chains in the body (Functional Fitness and Primal Movement).

Jane has been teaching Pilates for four years in West Oxfordshire, having originally trained with Australian Pilates & Pilates Institute and Alan Herdman, regularly attends Feldenkrais sessions and has worked with myofascial system for over ten years as a Clinical Massage Therapist.

Soma Pilates group sessions run as a progressive set of series through the 2018/19 academic year  (one series roughly equates to academic terms):

Series 1, £84; 2, £96; 3, £72; 4, £72; 5, £60; 6, £84 (£12 x 7, 8, 6 or 5 weeks depending on the number of weeks)

Annual (6 series) £390 (£10 per session)

Half year (3 series) £231/198 (£11 per session)

Per single session: £15

Pay by cash, cheque (Jane McDonald) or BACS.

Mats are provided at the Music Room, not at the Baptist Church Hall or South Oxford Community Centre. It is advisable to wear trainers for the warm-up, which involves cardiovascular exercises to increase your metabolism.

All new Pilates People will complete an assessment form and attend an introductory session suited to your level of experience and clinical presentation.
