Pilates is a system of exercise, unlike any other system, working on the forces of the body.
Devised by the late Joseph Pilates, it caters for all ages and ranges from rehabilitation Pilates and daily fitness to cross training for the super fit professional athlete who requires an understanding of the mechanics of the body.
The pilates system of exercise will immediately highlight your weaker areas and through a carefully devised system will take you from strength to strength at your own pace.
The system concentrates on alignment and muscle balance. It improves and restores posture.
Pilates achieves positive results. It addresses core control, overall muscle strengthening, muscle tone, flexibility, balance, continence and stress reduction.
Pilates concentrates on the deeper underlying muscles that stabilise and support the body in its daily function.
None of the exercises are based on countless repetitions. A good teacher will work with control, co-ordination, rhythmical action and timing.
All the exercises are executed with awareness so that even the smallest movement has value. It is intelligent exercise through an intellectual approach and is a process that aims to change functional possibilities.
You can now experience quiet strength and calm power.
