At Hudson Barry you’ll find hand picked staff with comprehensive qualifications. Our instructors have all experienced their own personal transformation via the Pilates method and are passionate, committed and dedicated to sharing this passion with our clients. They have all been personally groomed and mentored for their position by Hudson Barry Director and Principal trainer Melissa Barry (a stickler for precision, integrity and high standards of excellence). Our staff, are committed to walking the talk, they maintain their own regular workouts and are always striving to learn more and evolve by regularly participating in ongoing education.
The Pilates method is a whole body workout. It's like an active meditation as you engage your mind, breath & powerhouse to perform exercises with precision, focus and ultimately with flow and power.
We set about teaching you to lengthen and strengthen your whole body while rejuvenating your mind. It is satisfyingly strong work and can even be acrobatic at the advanced level!
Don't panic though, we start you with the basics and spend time rehabilitating areas as needed. It is not a thing to be rushed. The key is learning to move correctly & dynamically, then adding ever more challenge, to create your NEW body!
"In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference and in 30 you will have a new body." Joe Pilates.
Since quality is paramount, all new clients start privately to learn correct technique, which also allows for individual programming & attention to detail.
We are passionate about integrity & quality and our clients achieve life changing results. Both studios are fully equipped with world class, traditional apparatus. We have reformers, chairs, barrels, ped-a-pul, cadillacs, towers and other small apparatus.
As your pilates journey progresses you will be advanced through the repertoire and learn appropriate exercises for your level on each apparatus over time. To join our group sessions, we like you to achieve a reasonable level of execution & flow so that we can maintain energy & equal attention to all in the class. We do understand that every body has different needs & at times limitations, so we modify accordingly for those clients and these will be mapped out in your privates. We don't expect you to go beyond your limits. Joe Pilates said that until you fully understand an exercise there is no point in going on to the next. We wholeheartedly agree.
Self mastery is a journey & we'd love to be a part of yours!
"Contrology is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. Through contrology you first purposefully acquire complete control of your own body and then through proper repitition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and co-ordination associated with your subconscious activities."
Joseph Hubertus Pilates
