Pilates for Everyone

At The Little Pilates Company, we're passionate about making the magic of Pilates available to everyone.

We're committed to small, personal classes, led by friendly, enthusiastic and experienced teachers who are always on hand to provide help, support and encouragement.

We tailor our classes to suit everyone taking part – which means that whether you're a complete novice, or an experienced Pilates practitioner, you'll always get the session you need.

The Little Pilates Company was formed in January 2014 at our cosy little studio in Howard Street, close to the banks of the Tyne in the centre of North Shields.

Airy, light, and spacious, it's the ideal spot for Pilates. And over the years since we started, we've built a lovely community there – young and old, male and female, from absolute beginners through to Pilates veterans.

Sadly, due to Covid-19, we're not currently operating from our Howard Street home. But our little family is as strong as ever, thanks to a regular calendar of online classes, zoom catch-ups and outdoor riverside sessions.
