Class Schedule

The pace of classes are rated Deliberate, Moderate or Accelerated as a general guide, but you should do what feels right for your body and ability. Pay attention to the level of the class as well as the pace.


Intended to challenge you by connecting you to the work. The instructor may include more details about the form or movement of an exercise, slow the tempo of an exercise or pause within a class more frequently to explain a concept or movement pattern.


A basic level of competency of the exercises being taught is assumed. There is a greater focus on flow and continuous movement compared to deliberate classes allowing for necessary pauses (for example, if a movement needs clarifying), but limits stopping as much as possible in order to achieve flow in the class.


Designed to challenge precision and control while increasing the heart rate and the level of concentration required. These classes tend to be taught at a higher level but may also be found at lower level classes. With the exception of a few specialty classes, the assumption is that the exercises are familiar to the student.


Your Instructors

 Amanda using one of the two barres at St George's Church


Amanda is the only certified Barre Concept© instructor in Brighton. Drawing on 9 years teaching experience in Pilates, she has helped people of all ages to overcome or improve back and other musculoskeletal disorders, ranging from Sciatica and myofascial pain, to shoulder complaints and chronic conditions.

It's really important that clients enjoy a great workout, with safe, effective movements and easy to follow instructions that they can incorporate into a daily routine.

Both the Pilates and Barre Concept routines are challenging yet fun and functional. Whether it is restored function or improved performance you are after, as long as you are prepared to apply regular effort to your routine, these classes will help you achieve great results.


As an electrician, Aaron had acute shoulder instability and back problems, and realised that Pilates was the ideal movement form to correct his poor technique at the gym and to support functional movement at work. In 2012, Allan Menezes (Director of Pilates Institute of Australasia) encouraged Aaron to study anatomy and physiology and to later gain his confidence to train and succeed in gaining his Pilates qualification in January 2017.

Aaron trained with Emma Newham, Creator of Barre Concept™ this year, and is looking forward to helping others achieve their fitness goals and recognise the benefits of a realistic and progressive exercise routine that follows the specific needs of your body.
