Pilates is a disciplined physical system which was created by German anatomist Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century. Through a series of precise, controlled movements, it targets all muscle groups in the body whilst dramatically improving posture, functionality and flexibility.

Pilates classes are often fusion-based, using some of the elements of traditional Pilates (generally the mat or reformer device), but incorporating other movement techniques and methods. This means they move away from the true methodology of Pilates and can become more like High-Intensity Interval Training sessions, on an unstable surface.

There are endless adaptations of Pilates currently offered at studios and gyms around the world, but Classical Pilates is considered to be the practice in its truest form. That’s not to say that other versions should be dismissed – far from it – but if you’re looking for authenticity, Classical Pilates at Recharge Rooms might be where you want to start.

1. At Recharge Rooms, you will be guided through your Classical Pilates session by one of the top UK’s teachers. Classical Pilates teachers are required to undergo a rigorous training program, with a minimum of 600 hours of training and apprenticeship, under teachers who are disciples of the practise as described by Joseph Pilates, himself.

2. In the true Classical Pilates method, there is a sequence to the work, which is designed to move the body through a full range of movement. The sequence builds intelligently and incrementally, with foundational exercises at the beginning and more complex exercises as you gain strength and control.

3. Classical Pilates classes require ample apparatus. Apart from the commonly known Reformer, other functional Pilates apparatus include the Tower/Wall unit, Toe and Foot Correctors, Wunda Chairs and more. Recharge Rooms offers the full array of Classical Pilates devices, and you will be encouraged to try them all, under the careful supervision of our instructor.

4. Classical Pilates is dynamic, controlled, flowing – and yes, you do sweat.

1. The exercise regime engages the trainer to work on all planes of movement and addresses every joint in the body in a flowing and structured manner, thereby minimising the risk of injuries and strains.

2. Strengthens the abdominal muscles which support the spine and, in turn, relieves chronic back syndromes and pains.

3. Promotes new neuromuscular patterns, increased body awareness, precise coordination, range of motion and spinal flexibility.

4. Sculpts the body by creating lean, beautifully-toned and well-proportioned muscles.

5. Improves posture and alignment, creating adequate space for the internal organs to function optimally.

6. Energizes the body and increases endurance by improving strength and flexibility.

7. Increases blood circulation by carrying oxygenated cells to the muscles and brain, strengthening the heart and lungs.

8. Promotes deep breathing which, in turn, increases lung capacity.

9. Stimulates the body’s lymphatic system, which helps in flushing out toxins. This was called an ‘Internal Shower’ by Joseph Pilates.

10. Helps to preserve and even increase bone density which, in turn, can prolong and – in some cases – even prevent Osteoporosis, Arthritis and other conditions of the skeletal system.

EMS BOXING (or EMS weights and bands)

50 mins - £85
30 mins - £70

private sessions only

Our signature tailor-made training experience combines EMS (MIHA Bodytec Electrical Muscular Stimulation technology) – one of the most advanced fitness technologies that helps to engage muscles – and Boxing – a complete exercise that works and strengthens the entire body, increases endurance and physical strength and provides weight-busting aerobic benefits. Whereas regular EMS workouts last 20 minutes, our one-on-one sessions last 50 minutes, introducing stretching and elements of mat Pilates. This combination makes for a much more fun and engaging session, including the dynamics of boxing.
For those who prefer shorter sessions over a lunch break or first thing in the morning we offer 30 mins sessions.
We also offer EMS weights and bands workouts. Ask your trainer for more details.

Think about this ultimate workout as an even more efficient boxing session, where more muscles engaged in a more effective manner. For this boxing session, you will be wearing a special vest and bands on your arms and glutes, which are wired to a station which sends electrical impulses to all the targeted muscle groups. These electrical impulses help to activate more muscle fibres than you would be able to activate during a non-EMS session. We use MIHA Bodytec technology, the leading German manufacturer of premium EMS training equipment.

EMS training alone gives you the results of a long workout, in less than half the time, but don’t be fooled – it’s certainly not easy. A 20-minute EMS workout equates to a 90-minute high-intensity gym class or personal training session and can easily be added to your existing workout routine or used independently. By introducing EMS to a boxing workout, you will achieve your goals faster, more efficiently and effectively.

Each body is unique and, at Recharge Rooms, we strongly believe that private one-on-one sessions give you the most benefit, since they are tailored to your personal needs. Each session is led by highly-experienced personal trainers and designed to help you reach your specific, individual goals. Noticeable results can be seen after as few as 4 sessions, depending on your lifestyle.

During the workout, you’ll wear an advanced EMS suit containing internal electrodes. The suit fits easily over your shorts or leggings, long-sleeved top and trainers and gloves are provided, while you’re welcome to bring your own hand wraps.

You’ll feel the toning benefits and muscle building effects of the EMS suit throughout your workout as it gently contracts the target muscles on a cycle, exponentially enhancing the workout in a safe and painless fashion.

Please note that the EMS suit needs to be dampened to enhance conductivity, so your gym gear will become wet. We recommend bringing spare clothes to change at the end of your workout.

You can combine EMS Boxing with any other sessions at Recharge Rooms. Our facilities include showers, a bar and a café, allowing you place to recharge, relax or work your way through a day in our tranquil surrounds. We also recommend our Ozone and infrared sauna after your session for enhanced muscle and joint recovery and a general energy and immune boost.

Recharge Rooms offers specially-tailored packages for any taste. You can find them in our Recharge Packages section.

There are many benefits to be derived from EMS Boxing beyond strength, weight loss and endurance – boxing is also a great exercise for stress release. Here are just some of the countless benefits of our EMS Boxing sessions:

– Weight loss – Gain muscle mass fast.
– Better body tone and body shape.
– Increased endurance and strength.
– Active muscles for longer (muscles stay activated for substantial period of time after the session).
– Cardiovascular system improvements.
– Improved reflexes and coordination.

Profound, intelligent and transformative, Iyengar Yoga is a practise for every age, body type and fitness level. By drawing concentration and focus to every movement and the alignment of each posture, Iyengar Yoga is a practice of precision. Poses are held for long periods and often modified with props. At Recharge Rooms, we believe one of the key advantages of the Iyengar method is that it encourages the use of specific props to assist students within an asana, without putting them at risk of injury. Effective alignment can help practitioners of Iyengar Yoga achieve balance between body, mind and breath.

The Iyengar Yoga method is designed to systematically cultivate strength, flexibility, stability and awareness, and can be immensely therapeutic for specific conditions.

Iyengar Yoga focuses on three aspects: alignment, sequencing and timing.

– Alignment means maintaining the intended pose, while respecting the body’s boundaries. We use simple props to maximize the ‘opening’ and awareness of the body, providing support to the less flexible and extra extension to more advanced students.
– Sequencing refers to the order in which the postures are practiced within a session to enable a safe and structured progression of the poses. Teaching is oriented toward gradual, but steady progress, rather than quick results. Each Iyengar Yoga class comprises a unique sequence that guides students through a safe and systematic progression, along with the ‘opening’ and balance of the physical and emotional body.
– In Iyengar Yoga, poses are held for longer periods of time than in some other forms of yoga. When stability has been achieved in a pose, it’s then possible to safely intensify the depth of the posture. This helps to help develop strength and flexibility, along with sensitivity and the connection between the body and mind.

NCREASED FLEXIBILITY. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes to do Iyengar Yoga, however the practise is an incredible method for immensely improving flexibility. Iyengar is a slow, gentle yet demanding practise, steadily guiding the practitioner into stretches that are held for approximately one minute. The props used are there to enable students of all levels to hold postures without causing pain or injury.

TONED MUSCLES. In addition to stretching your muscles, the physical demand of holding each pose for a minute will help build strength in both body and mind. Because Iyengar engages the whole body, the attention goes not just to the main muscle, but guides you to think about where and how the muscles are connected to other body parts and to engage those as well. The result is a full-body toning experience and a refinement in your awareness of the deeper workings of your muscles and how your body is connected.

A CALMER MIND. Once you are in the asana or pose, Iyengar Yoga encourages you to focus on the precise alignment of your body, disengaging other thoughts and allowing you to be fully present in the moment. Think of it as a type of meditation and, like meditation, the more you practice it, the calmer your mind will be – on and off the mat.

PAIN RELIEF. Studies have supported the power of Iyengar Yoga in relieving back and neck pain. The focused attention on alignment means that much of the slouching, hunching and muscle weakness that leads to back and neck pain in our everyday lives can be overcome through this practise, which becomes part of the way practitioners move even when away from the mat. Iyengar also helps stretch the muscles of the back and relieve pain-causing tension.

IMPROVED POSTURE. Through its focus on alignment, Iyengar Yoga helps strengthen the muscles of the body responsible for posture, like the legs, back and core – the former two of which are most commonly neglected. With minor adjustments to improve alignment, even small muscles that are often ignored, become stronger. The result is that you’ll find yourself sitting and standing straighter, which will give you more energy, less pain, and increased confidence.

PROTECTION FROM DISEASE. Disease often occurs when the body’s normal processes don’t function the way they should. Iyengar Yoga helps improve the overall functioning of the body, from the circulatory and lymph systems, to the nervous system and digestion. When the body’s systems are working at their optimal capacity, organs are nourished, toxins are eliminated and the risk of some diseases decreases.

IMPROVED BREATHING. While you hold your asana and consider your alignment, Iyengar also instructs you to focus on the breath. Whether you realise it or not, many of us hold our breath during times of stress. The more you practice breathing through Iyengar Yoga, the less you’ll end up holding your breath unconsciously, encouraging a constant flow of oxygen to the brain, with myriad health benefits.

Recharge Rooms’ Iyengar Yoga sessions are tailor-made, one-on-one sessions, where you will be provided with everything necessary to complete your practise.
