Josephine's Pilates and Fitness Classes


Even though we don't have classes, I am doing a weekly session at home and you are my inner voice. "Feet hip width apart", Make sure your hips are stacked", "Let's do one more set". Looking forward to classes resuming, however!
Yoga or Pilates? Very good article in The Guardian with some great quotes!
“Generally speaking, yoga is much more about flexibility and stability, pilates is strength and stability.”
Suzi Power, who teaches yoga and pilates at the community studio East of Eden in London, sees the benefits of both. She advocates pilates as a safer option for those prone to injury, or those who are exploring this type of exercise for the first time. “I trained in yoga first, but I was drawn to pilates reformer because I had a yoga injury. Pilates helped me to rehabilitate.”
"Yoga uses the body to connect with the mind and the inner self, while pilates uses mindfulness to connect to the inner workings of the body."
“Both pilates and yoga target muscle groups that you won’t access in many other forms of exercise. You can be an incredibly fit runner or boxer and come out of a yoga or pilates class in agony because you’ve worked muscles you don’t usually engage.” 😂
Wow! some very impressive 'Swans'!
Can't wait for you to join us Josephine! All welcome to the Lindy Club beginners courses starting in a couple of weeks. No partner required!
Hi Jo I remember some Southampton classes are not on soon, is it on tonight? Thanks, Sam x

Pilates and Fitness Classes throughout the Southampton area - England Josephine Arnold - I trained as a professional dancer, studying all forms of dance at Arts Educational Schools London.

Studying ISTD Advanced Ballet under Ann Heaton from the London Festival Ballet; Modern, Contemporary & Tap; and Jazz under Arlene Phillips (creator of Hot Gossip and a SCD Judge). Performing as a soloist dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris for a number of years and then touring throughout Europe with my own dance group. My deep understanding of all forms of dance enhances my knowledge of the body

RIP Queen Elizabeth

She was unexpectedly put into a position of enormous responsibility.

Well educated, privileged certainly, but as a women she was in a position of leadership and influence long before anything that resembles modern feminism had emerged.

She was a very hard working woman, working right up to two days before her death!

She has been a constant in all our lifes, giving us that link to parents and grandparents.

May we all remember and take life-long inspiration from our Great Queen.


National Fitness day today! Get out there, walk, jog, run or get some Pilates in!!


This should be interesting. Hope to see some of you there.

This week working on the rollers. Here's my hard working St Mary's Church Hall group.


Sorry to have canceled Online Pilates this morning. Afraid my Virtigo reminded me of the quote "Listen to your body, it's the only one you've got!" Currently giving myself a bit of self treatment, hopefully it will have calmed down for tomorrow's classes.


Pilates this evening! (Not to be tried without supervision, if you have a shoulder injury or issues with your knees!)

Good morning all my hard working Pilates people. Just a little meme to put a smile on your face! Afraid this happens too often with me!


The full documentary is well worth watching, 30mins. I have always loved Sylvie Guillem. I did ballet classes with her in Paris in 1981-82 and her very humble no nonsense attitude in class was refreshing. In this interview it comes across; her decision and timing when she stopped dancing and the way she now lives her life. 💖

Age is but a number! Go Girl!


As I say, 'There's always other options!'


It has been one year since online fitness classes started. The industry has adapted, unfortunately some have fallen, some have bounced back stronger! 😁 Big thank you to all those clients who have stuck with it. Who have also pushed back the furniture, adapted and transferred to online classes. As Arnie says we will be back!


Happy 98 🎂 dancing nana

If you aren’t on this list, then you’ll need to wait until invited for your vaccine or until you become eligible (keep an eye on the app / NHS website for updates).

Big high five to all the NHS staff doing this important rollout as part of our route to being able to live fully and freely and see each other again 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
