OUR STUDIO TIMETABLES
Why do classes with us?
At Total Therapy Studios we aim to provide a range of exercise classes, all with a therapeutic and clinical benefit. We pride ourselves on providing the most affordable, flexible and varied timetable in West Sussex, whilst ensuring that you get the classes you need on a regular basis in a fun and safe environment.
We're primarily a clinical facility, and due to the differences between our classes and varying needs of our clients we do have a two stage process to join the majority of our classes. It's vital to us that we find the right class for you, therefore we ask that you first complete our online questionnaire to ensure that we fully understand your requirements, history and crucially your availability. Our classes are very popular and due to this we want to make sure we can find a space for you! The second stage of joining our classes is us meeting you, so after we've received your questionnaire we'll make contact with you to arrange a one-to-one with Sarah.
our main studio space
The core of our class schedule at Total Therapy Studios, this timetable shows the classes we hold in studio one. These are classes led by our highly trained instructors, and have a maximum of ten people in them. This small group format truly allows the instructor to support and interact with you, ensuring that you're performing the movements correctly.
These classes are run exclusively by the clinical team and provide the latest clinical research in correct movement and exercise for those in pain, recovering from injury or have high fear around exercise and movement.
These classes focus more on the activation of isolated muscles or muscle groups which are normally weak in the presence of pain, injury or reduced mobility. These classes are slower and use different therapeutic techniques to loosen and stretch the body before and after movement.
Pilates focuses on more compound movements (utilising more than one muscle group) working with the breath, creating full body movement, balance, mobility, stability and strength. All great for postural issues, tightness and overall stability. These are not suitable for people with acute pain and often do more in the standing posture than other classes.
A more advanced dynamic upbeat class utilising skills learned in previous Pilates classes. The class will vary the number of reps, sets and pace of movements to challenge muscle strength and endurance, helping to further strengthen your bodies for healthy and efficient movement. This class is not for beginners or people who are in pain.
Core Conditioning Classes
These classes are open to all who want to focus specifically on the components of core strength (abs, backs and glutes). The class will be adapted to suit multi level exercises and will certainly involve planks and other bold movements.
This class is ideally suited to those in their later years who may struggle to exercise on the floor. The class focuses more on balance and mobility, gentle stability exercises and exercises on the chair.
Yoga therapy is a nurturing movement therapy utilising the breath and gentle asanas to explore the body, the mind, and where you are in that moment.
Women’s Wellness Yoga
This is a gentle movement class utilising the breath, gentle asanas and movement focusing grounding you through the pelvis and abdominal area. The class will finish with a relaxing Yoga Nidra specific to women.
Yoga Nidra is a powerful relaxation technique dedicated to calming the nervous system and restoring the body and the mind. These classes are excellent for anyone suffering with illness, anxiety, stress, fibromyalgia, MS among others, but equally important for anyone with busy mind.
Yin Yoga classes
Yin Yoga is a slower physical practice where specific asanas (postures) are held for much longer than in other classes to allow your body the time to adapt and truly stretch using bolsters and props. This is mainly a floor based class focusing on the fascial system, so excellent for those who suffer with muscle and joint stiffness.
Yoga flow is a more physical class exploring a broader range of the asanas (postures) and the ease movement between them (flow). These classes are not be suitable for those in acute pain.
These classes combine to two styles of yoga (yoga flow and yin) for a fully integrated experience of full body movement and deep body stretch
These classes explore and practice the strength and flexibility required for more advanced movements such as inversions, handstands, headstands and balances.
Pilates and Movement
The core of what we do, this timetable shows our main classes. These are classes led by our highly trained instructors, and have a maximum of ten people in them. This small group format truly allows the instructor to support and interact with you, ensuring that you're performing the movements correctly. In our Clinical Pilates classes, all of our instuctors are not only highly trained to the highest APPI global standard, but they're also degree level Sports Therapists as well, which means a greater focus and understanding of how the body works.
