Classes – Pilates

Practitioner-Led Small Group Classes

Classes are currently being run online from our Zoom Pilates studio

All our classes are led by practitioners of relevant therapies at Summertown Clinic. At the moment we have our Pilates classes with Claire Cullen (Osteopath), though we’re hoping to restart our yoga classes soon.

Because we have small class sizes they are appropriate to all levels as progressions are moved through within the lesson for each level of challenge.

Pilates - Mat Work

Pilates is a form of movement developed by Joseph H. Pilates who developed a method called ‘Contrology’ during the 1900s which focuses on flexibility through strengthening the body from the inside out. 

Pilates helps improve posture, balance & co-ordination. Claire teaches Pilates mat work from a clinical perspective with the view to addressing weaknesses and individual rehabilitative issues

Online Classes

We’re Online During The COVID Pandemic

All our classes are currently run through Zoom…

Due to the need to move away from face to face contact and to reduce any risk of exposure we’ve gone fully online!

Once you’ve bought your class passes, book into the class you want to attend, then several hours before the class your teacher will send you a link to the Online Zoom Meeting. This is a simple link that you can click on and you’ll be taken to the class.

Any problems please contact the clinic on 01865 558561 and we’ll be able to help talk you through how to connect.

Our Class Teachers

We have Oxford’s best teachers and we’re proud of them! Each one also works at the clinic as a practitioner of a relevant therapy, which ensures they give you the benefit of their professional knowledge beyond their teaching training.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the more frequent things we get asked about:

What kit do I need to attend?

We’ve got you covered, we’ll supply blocks, bricks, mats, balls, blankets and even straps to help make sure you’ve got everything you need. 

If you have your own stuff please do bring it along, it’s good practice to get familiar with your own equipment. 

What should I wear?

It’s a good idea to wear loose fitting clothing that you can move freely in. Most class goers wear a tshirt and track suit bottoms, or a active clothing.

Bare feet are perfect for both Pilates, and yoga.


What should I do if I need to cancel?

Get in touch! As soon as you know, let us know. You can do this by phone 01865 558561, or by email: There is also a cancellation option in the Mindbody app/software we use.

LATE CANCELLATIONS: unfortunately if you cancel within 24 hours of the class starting you will be charged for that class.

How do I book in?

We use Mindbody to run our class timetable, and you’ll need to set up a profile, buy credits and then book into the classes you want to book into.

I haven't done this class before will that be a problem?

No, with smaller classes we can focus on individuals much more closely. We do offer some improvers classes, and these are designed to be a step up. If you’re not sure please just contact us and we’ll suggest the most appropriate class for you.

Do you have a refund policy?

Sure, as we everything we do, it’s all about meeting your expectations. Let us know if you need/want a refund and we will organise it for you.

Can I try the class out, then pay if I enjoy it?

Sorry no. You can come along by booking in for a single class, but we’d recommend taking the plunge, in fact we’re so sure you’ll enjoy it if you don’t think it’s right for you after the first class we’ll refund your money.

Are there any online classes at the moment?

Yes, both our Pilates classes (Claire Cullen) and our Yoga sessions are online, and have proved really popular. It’s very liberating working out in the comfort of your own home! Click here for more information.
