Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It’s a way of learning how your body works that gives you the tools to improve your own posture, appearance and physical wellbeing. The message is ‘Quality, not Quantity’. The exercise method evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs.
It can benefit everyone regardless of their age or fitness level. By helping to correct muscle imbalances the body is realigned and can move more efficiently and effectively. The method is proving popular not only for those who simply want to get fit or de-stress but for people with back pain, specific injuries or medical problems, top athletes and sports professionals. Pilates has gained increasing support and recognition from the medical profession, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors.
