About Pilates

 

Pilates can greatly benefit anyone looking to improve their posture, fitness and mobility. We work with a wide range of people from those rehabiliting from injury, beginners to exercise to those wishing to enhance their sport including tennis, swimming, golf, running and many more. Regardless of age, ability or fitness Pilates can help everyone.

 

'Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.'

Joseph Pilates

The Pilates Method
 

The Pilates method (originally called ‘Contrology’) was developed in the early 1900s by Joseph Pilates. His technique unites mind and body to improve strength, flexibility, mobility, overall health and a sense of well being.

 

The Pilates method is designed to restore balance to the body and develop efficiency in movement. The technique is particularly helpful in uncovering areas of imbalance in the body, working to correct this can help to prevent injury. Our classes focus on specific areas individually, whilst also using exercises that integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum function.
