“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit” -Joseph Pilates

eveloped in the 1920s by the legendary physical trainer and founder of The New York Pilates Studio, Joseph H. Pilates, the Pilates Method is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility and strength for the total body.

This practice is a mind/body technique consisting of a series of controlled, flowing movements, which improve your shape and flexibility. Pilates can remedy postural problems by realigning your body structure to its natural balance, allowing internal organs to function more efficiently.

Often injury, pain or discomfort comes from imbalance and incorrect muscle movement patterns. Pilates works towards creating a more harmonious relationship between the muscles and joints thus relieving a lot of our general aches and pains.

The primary aim of Pilates is to promote stability in the “core” (Pelvic Floor and Transverse Abdominus). To achieve this the exercises are carried out with precision, maintaining a constant connection between mind and body. It is not surprising therefore that some of the first people to use the Pilates Method were rehab clients, dancers, and a wide range of athletes. The Pilates Method is not just exercise; it engages your body and mind as a whole and is fantastic for getting back into shape or maintaining a healthy physique.

Once you embark on the Pilates journey you will start to feel stronger, taller and more energised within a few sessions. Your body awareness increases and your posture improves leaving you feeling lighter and more confident.
