What is Pilates?
Pilates is a method that fuses movement and breath in order to strengthen the body physically & mentally, bringing alignment and balance. It will enhance your strength, flexibility and co-ordination through the isolation and activation of the core stabilising muscles.
What can Pilates do for me?
Improve your posture and joint mobility
Strengthen and lengthen muscles
Allow you to train more efficiently and help prevent injury
Improve your physical self-awareness
Help to reduce stress and improve mental focus
Target and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles (important for everyone)
The beauty of the method is that it can be adapted to suit anyone, from professional sports people to seniors.
It is important that we establish your Pilates goals together so that we can develop a programme or find the right group class to achieve them.
It isn’t a quick fix method. It requires patience and commitment, but from that will come great rewards.
