What is Pilates?
Pilates offers both mental and physical training. By improving body awareness and focus, tension is released from the body and correct postural alignment is taught.
Pilates is slow and controlled. Working the stabilising muscles, we build strength from the inside out.
The Method is based upon a well-constructed philosophical foundation.
Each and every exercise is built around its eight key principles:
Relaxation, Breathing, Concentration, Flowing Movements, Alignment, Co-ordination, Centring, Stamina
By practising the Pilates Method on a regular basis, you will achieve a longer, leaner and more toned body. It will improve your posture, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility, and is a great way of relieving stress and tension.
Who is it for?
Pilates is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, from the top athletes to the first time exerciser. It is also suitable for those who suffer from back pain, sports injuries, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, repetitive strain injury, stress-related illnesses and ME.
