Shadow puppetry, magic and audience interaction all make this a fun show for all the family.

New classes at the Village Centre – Pilates, yoga & meditation

New classes are starting at Dickleburgh Village Centre

Pilates

Mondays 09:30-10:30am with Miranda Tuddenham

STOTT Pilates is a contemporary approach to the original Pilates method.

These exercises are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints.

This means more concentration is placed on the pelvis and collar bone stabilization, and the integration of all body parts into one.

The technique has a variety of modifications and equipment meaning it can cater for a wide variety of body types and abilities, making it applicable to sport-specific training and everyday life.

STOTT Pilates has five basic principles; breathing, pelvic placement, rib cage placement, scapular placement and head and cervical spine placement.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any queries or enquiries,
