Independently-owned Marlow Club opens premium yoga and pilates studio

The Marlow Club in Buckinghamshire has opened PilaYoga, a standalone studio offering yoga and pilates.

PilaYoga is integrated into The Marlow Club, but with its own, dedicated entrance it operates as a standalone facility, with its own identity and membership.

The facility houses two studios – one for mat-based yoga and Pilates classes and another dedicated to four Merrithew pilates reformers, supplied by Physical Company.

The launch of PilaYoga is part of a larger redevelopment of the The Marlow Club, which has seen changing facilities extended and upgraded, a new functional fitness space added to the gym floor and the introduction of two new therapy rooms.

“Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the demand for a more holistic fitness and wellbeing offer”, says Jon Williams, COO at the Marlow Club.

“The Club timetable offers a good selection of yoga and Pilates classes but we identified an opportunity to create a bespoke environment where people can completely switch off from the hustle and bustle of day to day life and enjoy a totally immersive experience. This is exactly what we have created with PilaYoga.”

The studio space took five months to complete and was designed by architects Edgington Spink + Hyne and was built by The Lowe Group.

The Marlow Club was formerly called Oasis, before it was acquired by RFL – a company set up to purchase and manage the site – in 2003. It was then rebranded as The Marlow Club as part of a £1.5m redevelopment in 2005.
