Shaping Futures has opened a new state-of-the-art Pilates and Wellbeing Centre in Belmont, Durham.
Shaping Futures has been operating in Durham since 2005 and has built an excellent reputation for offering a range of high-end classic Pilates mat and equipment classes, alongside their legendary cardio classes that strengthen, heal and tone the whole body.   Leila Bramwell, the owner of Shaping Futures, also specialises in helping people with back pain, hypermobility problems and rehabilitation requirements.
The move to the new premises in Belmont, allows the company to expand the number of classes and private instruction offered and to further develop the back clinic.  A significant part of the investment has been spent on bringing in state-of-the-art Gratz Classical Pilates equipment, which allows classes to be taken to another level.
“Since I started teaching individual client Pilates in my own home, I have always wanted to open a state-of-the-art Pilates centre.   Over the past decade I have undertaken numerous contemporary courses, all over the world and now I am comprehensively trained in Classical (The true method) as to ensure I am the best possible teacher for my clients,” explains Leila Bramwell.  “Seeing the impact our classes and private sessions have had on people who have not been able to work for months due to back problems and living in misery with pain, has driven me forward, to make sure I could open this Centre.”
The Durham centre offers Classical Pilates mat classes for all abilities, as well as Pilates Reformer, MVE Chair and Tower that add resistance to strengthen the body.  Yoga and mindfulness classes are also available as well as spin.

“All our staff at Shaping Futures are excited by our expansion. We thrive off providing a friendly welcoming environment.  We are hoping that our brand-new, state-of-the-art studios will inspire new clients to join our growing Pilates community, making the North-East a Pilates hub.”
