Meet your instructors
Hi, we're Sam & Sarah, two sisters who founded The Springs Pilates studio.
We're qualified Pilates Reformer instructors, passionate about sharing our obsession for Reformer from our dedicated studio in Totton, on the edge of the New Forest.
Book your first session today, and let us help you unlock your full potential and reach your goals.
Our dedicated studio is the perfect place to discover the many benefits of this dynamic exercise technique.
The Springs is located within Bodyworx Health Clinic, Totton, just off the A35 Spicers Hill.
From the M27 we're easily accessible from both Junction 2 and 3.
If you're coming from Southampton, follow the Redbridge road and take the A35 Totton bypass, we're located next to the Trant building.
Get directions here
You can book by downloading our The Springs Studios App or access through our webpage.
We offer pay-as-you-go classes and 2 reformer membership options.
If you have never used a reformer before, we recommend you contact us before booking, so we can discuss the best way for you to start your reformer journey.
Your safety is our priority and we need to determine your individual requirements first, so we can best prepare you for using the reformer.
We may suggest booking a 1-1 session with us first, to get you comfortable, confident and safe on the Reformer.
Deciding on the right time to resume or start exercise after having a baby is very dependent on the individual, your birth and your body.
So we would need to talk to you to establish the best way of easing you back into exercise and when is the right time to start.
The NHS website states:
If you had a straightforward birth, you can start gentle exercise as soon as you feel up to it. This could include walking, gentle stretches, pelvic floor and tummy exercises.
It's usually a good idea to wait until after your 6-week postnatal check before starting high-impact exercise, such as aerobics or running.
We recommend getting your GP/ midwife or health visitor's go-ahead before you exercise post having a baby, especially if you had a surgical birth.
There is a private GP on-site at Bodyworx and an experienced physio team. We can discuss your options for a physio-led 1-1 session on the Reformer to ensure you're exercising safely.
When it comes to injury recovery and rehabilitation your safety is our primary concern.
We're lucky to be located within the Bodyworx Health clinic where they have an on-site doctor and physio, where you can have a private referral.
You can also book a physio-led 1:1 reformer session. We will then make a judgement based on assessing you as to whether you are ready to participate in our group dynamic classes.
You will need to bring a drink to keep hydrated and a towel.
We also recommend you bring sticky socks with you. If you don't have sticky socks, you can purchase them at the studio.
We’d like you to feel as comfortable as possible so comfortable activewear is advisable.
You don't need to wear crop tops or anything skin-tight if it makes you feel uncomfortable, but please don’t wear clothes that are too baggy as we need to see your body alignment to ensure you are executing the moves safely and correctly.
Sticky socks are a must because they will stop you from slipping on the reformer. If you don’t have any you can purchase them from the studio 🙂
Yes please. Sticky socks are a must because they will stop you slipping on the reformer. If you don’t have any you can purchase them from the studio 🙂
