Pilates is a holistic exercise system designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance; so much more than just building a ‘strong core’ or ‘perfect posture’.
Exercises involve the whole body and are performed on spring-assisted apparatus or a mat, sometimes utilising small equipment.
Pilates is effective as it addresses underlying structural imbalances in the body which can create on-going pain and difficulty with movement. The whole body is considered. Lengthened and strengthened muscles improve posture and overall fitness and retrain dysfunctional movement patterns, restoring optimum physical function
Using gravity, breath and spring resistance, Pilates uses whole body movement targeting specific muscle groups to re-educate movement patterns and rebalance the underlying muscular and structural systems in body.
Pilates targets the deep postural muscles, building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. It helps reshape your body, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility, and is a fabulous way to relieve stress and tension as well as conquering back pain or injury.
You will be encouraged to listen to your own body and become aware of your posture throughout the whole class. Pilates requires mental focus to ensure the precision of each movement . The teacher will be constantly checking the class giving you modifications needed or additional chalenges.
To us you are not a body but a person who we want to get to know.
Our philosophy of listening to our clients and getting to know each individual, has meant many of our clients have stayed with us from the beginning.
Our classes are kept small to ensure the highest standard of teaching.
