The owners of a new business say they have launched the first fully-equipped pilates studio in Berkhamsted.

Lucy Walton, Emma Bray and Kemi Roche launched their new classes in BayYoga, above Costa Coffee in Berkhamsted High Street, last month.

They have kitted their studio out with thousands of pounds worth of equipment that help the body to do stretches that would be otherwise difficult to perform.

Mrs Walton, 33, launched the business after selling her share of a studio in London, as she wanted 
to move somewhere nicer to have a baby.

Her classes come in packages including £185 for a block of 10 sessions for a group of three people.

She said: “You are getting lots of attention from us, which is why it’s more expensive than a big group mat class. It’s quite specialised here, so you can get more of the results you need.”
