Balance Studio

Paxtons Court, 23 Slaughterhouse Lane, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 1ER

Balance studio, Newark’s first and only dedicated Pilates Studio, is conveniently situated in the centre or Newark. We’re opposite the pedestrian entrance to Morrisons supermarket – you can park there for ease (there may be a charge to pay depending on the time of your visit), or in one of the many other public car parks in Newark.

Look out for our swing sign above eye level on the brick arch and then the white door – come through it and upstairs into our lovely, recently refurbished studio.

Our studio is very light and airy and has a calm and welcoming feeling.

We are fully equipped, so you do not even have to bring your own mat! We have foam rollers, fitness circles, pilates soft balls, dynamic bands, blocks, head cushions and numerous spiky and yoga tune up balls, allowing us to teach a huge variety of fun and challenging classes.  As the studio is not at street level, you are guaranteed privacy whilst practising your Pilates.

We have a small waiting room, places for your coats, bags and shoes to be stored, toilet facilities and a small kitchenette if you require a glass of water. Our waiting area has 2 notice boards where you will be kept up to date with everything that happens at Balance.

We host many different events, ranging from our Slim Forever workshop to Essential Oils, Medicinal Herbs, Mindfulness, Life Re-Think, Meditation and much more.

We also love to encourage our clients to socialise, so twice a year we arrange our coffee and cake mornings.
