Pilates for MS – Eight-week course  

Starting Monday 09 August 2021 at 11am 

Session 1 - 11-11.30am - Seated flow 

Session 2 - Mondays 11.45-12.15 - Standing or mat flow 

Following the successful introductory class held in May, we are pleased to announce we will be offering an eight-week Pilates course specifically tailored for people living with MS, designed and taught by highly qualified and experienced Pilates teacher Amanda Kemp.   

However your MS affects you, Amanda will deliver smart workouts to challenge and improve your movement, daily function and your understanding of Pilates whether you are a beginner or you have practiced Pilates before. The emphasis of the classes will be on the understanding and the practicing of correct movement patterns in relation to all areas of the body for different movements. Through this approach, it will promote stronger connections between the neural pathways and allow for increased efficiency when performing daily tasks. 

The classes will be split into two thirty minute sessions each week with the first at 11am focusing on exercises from seated and the second session at 11:45am from either a standing or floor position. The classes will allow for you to go at your pace and each exercise to be adapted to your level of practice. 

What to expect from the course: 

CREATE new neuromuscular connections focused on the four quadrants of the body and spinal mobility 

CHALLENGE the body by experiencing new movement patterns 

APPLY movement principles to work on gait, balance and strength 

EMPOWER you to feel confident and in more control of your body 

The course will be a ‘drop-in’ format each week, meaning that you don’t need to attend the whole eight-week course. Each session has a maximum of sixteen participants and the suggested donation for each session of £5.

About Amanda Amanda Kemp 1.jpg

I’ve been teaching Pilates since 2005 and practising it a long time before. I love how it enables you to create freer movement and get out of pain. It works the whole body from the inside out to create a lengthened body, stabilise joints and maintain balance, strength and flexibility.   I'm an experienced teacher, having worked with lots of different people. Pilates is perfect for recovering from injury or managing and improving long-term conditions.  

I'm particularly experienced in working with clients with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's and stroke. I also work with clients with arthritis, osteoporosis, hyper-mobility, scoliosis, slipped discs and more.  As a mum of four children I know how Pilates can be invaluable in supporting you mentally and physically.  

I teach small group classes in person and via zoom from my studio in the East Sussex countryside. To find out more, please visit my website
