What is Pilates?

A series of exercises devised to build and improve strength, stamina, and control by using breath pattern and a strong focus on alignment and placement and coordination. The ‘core’ is often talked about in the ‘exercise industry’ but in Pilates it is referred to as your ‘centre’ and with all the principles combined you can experience good flowing movement which should feel almost effortless once mastered! And the outcome is, you feel more energised, stretched & toned, and at more advanced levels, Pilates can also be a good aerobic form of exercise.

Pilates is a technique that can compliment any other types of exercise you do. It is perfect for runners, tennis players, golfers, horse riders…athletes. Pilates can also be used as a form of Physiotherapy post injury, not to mention protecting you from injury!
