All our classes are led by practitioners of relevant therapies at Summertown Clinic. Our Pilates classes with Claire Cullen, osteopath and Pilates teacher, and our yoga classes with Sophia Argyris our thai yoga massage therapist.

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 an osteopathic clinical perspective with the view to addressing weaknesses and individual rehabilitative issues

How to find our Pilates Studio

Classes are run from our studio at Stratfield Brake – Kidlington

All our classes are run from the Studio we use at Stratfield Brake off Frieze Way (OX5 1UP). It’s in south Kidlington close to the Sainsbury’s supermarket just a few minutes by bus from our clinic down the Banbury Road. There’s extensive parking at the sports pavillion, and it’s a large well ventilated space, perfect for Pilates with less risk.

To get to the studio head into the pavillion and go up the stairs on your left. As you get to the top of the stairs Claire runs her classes in the large room on the left as you’re looking at the bar. The door is left open during class times and there are some signs too.

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.
