Pilates (classical mat) is aimed at enhancing physical strength, posture and flexibility. On the other hand, Yoga focuses on attaining a harmonious state of body and mind through a combination of exercises, breathing and meditation. Both practices incorporate breathing techniques to enhance effectiveness.

In fusion sessions we combine the two to create a new approach. By combining the essential elements of Pilates and Yoga, a “Pilates Fusion” session provides a holistic experience that enhances breathing, posture, physical strength, flexibility, relaxation and meditation. 

Cheryl’s goal is to encourage self-awareness of posture, body alignment and core strength, which enables joint mobility throughout all movements. By combining Pilates’ emphasis on breathing with Yoga’s (Hatha) mindfulness, relaxation and meditation, Pilates Fusion aims to provide a comprehensive approach that incorporates the best of both practices.

begins with an Inhalation

followed by an Exhalation


Breathing plays a critical role in Pilates. Most movements are taught with a specific breathing pattern that involves inhaling through the nose to prepare for the movement and directing the breath into the sides of the ribs to expand the rib cage laterally. Exhaling through the mouth is used during movements that involve flexion and exertion. This is one of the core principles of Joseph Pilates’ approach to exercise.


Both Pilates and Yoga use breathing techniques as essential tools to improve their practices. While Yoga also emphasizes the importance of breathing, it typically uses a full belly breathing method in which the breath is taken in and out through the nose. This method helps oxygenate the blood, lower blood pressure and promote relaxation. In contrast, Pilates uses a three-dimensional breathing pattern (deep core breathing) that involves the lateral expansion of the rib cage activating the use of the diaphragm.

I have been doing Pilates with Cheryl for the past fourteen years. I am in my late 70’s and I am sure it has helped me keep as fit and agile as I am.

It is also a nice way of meeting a nice bunch of people who are similarly minded and I would encourage anyone, of any age to sign up with Cheryl. - 


I’d tried Pilates before but it just didn’t feel right. Then I found Cheryl and thought I’d give it a go again and what a difference!  Cheryl takes time to asses you and then makes the necessary adjustments to the exercises, for your needs considering your age and body type.
