Pilates is an exercise method designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Based upon an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems, the pilates teacher creates a comprehensive exercise programme for the client.
Classes will focus on specific areas whilst using exercises that integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
It is this holistic approach that sets pilates apart from many other forms of exercise.
When you walk in to a pilates class, focus your mind completely on your body in order to learn how to re-educate your muscles to move better. Be prepared to work hard and enjoy the wonderful benefits pilates has to offer. We have a wide range of classes available from back care, injury rehabilitation, pre and postnatal to advanced level classes which all aim to help you improve your posture, core strength, flexibility and co-ordination.
