Pilates is an exercise method, designed to elongate, strengthen, and restore the body to balance. Based on an anatomical understanding of the body’s musculature and skeletal systems. The Pilates teacher creates a comprehensive exercise programme for the client. Classes will focus on specific areas individually 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. Osteopaths, physiotherapists and general practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today. Pilates can be beneficial to just about everyone, regardless of age and fitness level.
