"Contrology (Pilates) develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit."
Pilates is both a physical and mental body-conditioning programme, which uses exercise to restore natural, normal movement and good posture. It increases body awareness, flexibility, strength, tone, co-ordination, stamina and general health.
As well as those who just want to stay in shape our qualified instructors can help clients during and after pregnancy, with osteoporosis, rehabilitation after surgery or with old and new injuries.
Pilates is recommended by many physiotherapists, osteopaths, GPs and chiropractors.

The Field is a place to come and relax, find new inspiration, find yourself, learn a new skill, or just for some peace and quiet.
We run various workshops that last from a weekend, a few days to a week at a time.
Workshops will be different depending on the time of year.
Yoga, Pilates, Creative writing, sketching/painting, contact improvisation, and more to come.
We are also open as a rentable space for anyone with inspiration for a course or workshop.
Depending on the course, you can come and join in with as much or as little of the day as you want or need. It's your time away, so if a day at a market instead of the farm is needed.......
You will have a choice of eating with us or of making your own food. We are Vegan and Vegetarian and you will be able to learn how to make the dishes we eat should you wish to.
Aiming eventually to be as self sufficient as is possible, The Field will be a quiet haven of tranquillity and learning. A place to boost your batteries or simply unwind.
