Pilates Manchester uses the latest research from Garuda Pilates, CHEK, fascia, functional movement and biomechanics providing a contemporary approach for the twentieth century.

Whilst respecting the original works of Joseph Pilates, Garuda Pilates disciplines combine to provide increased core strength and flexibility along with longer, leaner muscles resulting in a healthy mind and body. The apparatus used is ideal for Rehabilitation, injuries and performance. Pilates Manchester has a holistic approach incorporating mind and body. There must be great thoughts before the mind can become great. We use the Reformer Pilates and Tower machines plus the stability chair, ladder barrels and Garuda tower. The mind must become great before great results in the body can be achieved. Pilates Manchester is a dedicated Garuda Pilates, CHEK and GYROTONIC® studio set in a natural light airy dedicated space of Pilates facilities.

Garuda Pilates Classes for all levels of experience

Where Pilates ends, Garuda begins. Holistic, organic, dynamic – Garuda is the hybrid that is revolutionizing the approach to movement and  fitness. Garuda’s results are striking.

Developed by James D’Silva in London, Garuda is a holistic, organic approach to movement which concentrates on flow and rhythm. It has the clarity and mindfulness of Pilates as its core,  the economy of form of Alexander Technique, the self-perception of Feldenkrais, the spirituality of yoga and the joy of dance.

‘Blending the spirituality, pranayama and asana practice of yoga, the core strength and focus of Pilates and the balletic grace of dance… to create a new fluid, hybrid method of movement.’

A few words from our clients

At Pilates Manchester we work hard to ensure we offer a service which is second to none. Our reputation is very important to us – below are just a few comments from previous clients.

I’ve been a client of Nisha’s Sale studio for 4 years and have nothing but positive words to say about the classes, the teaching and the exercises. Since the studio was forced to close, I have absolutely loved the online classes during these difficult times. Nisha managed to get them up and running in a very short space of time giving much needed structure to my day and huge health and wellbeing benefits. They are challenging and with Nisha’s great teaching and inspiration, I feel like a new person after every class. It’s a great way to keep health & fitness activity and social contact at a distance going and the fact that the classes can cater for a large number of people in the Zoom application, both beginners and more advanced is brilliant. Huge congratulations Nisha!

I am very new to the whole Yoga / Pilates scene but do have a vast background in competing in sports at both a local and international standard. Following a period of injury you were recommended to me to assist in not only rehabilitation but also longer term health and well-being.  Following this, I have been getting involved in your Yoga / Pilates virtual classes now for the last 3 weeks and I am absolutely loving them. I try to do 4 virtual classes a week and I can feel the difference you have made in my posture and wellbeing.  I no longer wake up with back / hip pain and hope the virtual classes can continue in some capacity.

Despite wanting to, due to work commitments I will not always be able to make it to a studio class, therefore, these virtual classes have been a perfect alternative. Whilst I accept you are unable to view and correct poses and posture virtually, it is a brilliant alternative and hope they continue. I am looking forward to the next class, I feel bad when I miss a class and your positivity and ethos gives me a platform for all round healthier living.

Thanks Nisha ! Just wanted to post this review to say this course has given me an appreciation of the amazing power of Pilates. Lee is an amazing instructor, always explaining why we are doing a particular exercise, how to align correctly and micro correcting for best achievement. I have already increased the mobility in my thoracic spine, lengthened my whole spine and loosened both my shoulders. I have also begun to gain strength in my quads and core and this has really helped with my back pain. I am signing up again for another set of sessions.

I've joined classes here for 2 months now. The studio is 5 minutes away from my house and I surprised that I never notice until I google Pilates near me on Google!Anyway, I've joined two courses, a beginner one and a discovery course. I've met Nisha, Lee and Kenney. They're all very nice and patient. It is small class, which means you get quite a lot of guidance. They definitely bring me to the new world of Pilates, and I love it!

Highly recommend both 121 sessions and classes with Pilates Manchester. Excellent instruction, awareness of rehab and small class sizes. Been going for 4-5 years off and on but a regular now.

My husband and I have been going to Nisha for private classes for six years now. She does an amazing job of keeping us strong and fit. We both enjoy running, and she always tailors each session towards whatever niggles or priorities we have that week. She's incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and professional. I admire her desire to constantly keep learning and improving in every aspect of her life.

The best pilates classes I ever had. Forget about everything you know from pilates inside these regular gyms, this one is completely different, with an specific equipment, private lessons or small group, maximum 5 people, they can really focus on your needs and can pay attention in every detail of your body and movement. I can feel the difference and improvement on my body and I did only 3 months. The classes has one hour long, which worthy every penny, the teacher is really good, very focused and the place is really easy to access, 15 minutes from the city centre by tram. 5 stars , I really recommend.

I have recently completed the 6-week mat-based prenatal / postnatal Pilates classes. Nisha takes safety seriously and answered any questions I had in the pre-class health check phone call. The dedicated studio in Sale is well equipped and clean. Gemma, the instructor, is very friendly and adapted the exercise well for pregnancy. I would highly recommend this studio to any pregnant ladies wanting to keep fit and mobile. I have just signed up to another 6 weeks right up to my due date!

After years of bad neck and shoulder pain and the arrival of a new baby I started to attend Manchester Pilates in a hope to finally try and alleviate the issues and build back my strength! I was at the end of the road with how to even start to do this but through initial 1-1 sessions with Nisha and then group classes I can honestly say I have very little to no pain on a day to day basis. I enjoy the sessions and Nisha’s knowledge is remarkable. I also continued going all the way through my second pregnancy remaining strong for when I returned after a short break. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you’re in capable hands. Feeling very grateful this sort of studio exists near to where I live.
