The techniques were pioneered by Joseph Pilates some 90 years ago to improve body strength, shape, posture and mobility.
Pilates develops strong abdominal and spinal muscles and aims to increase body awareness.
Balance and flexibility are emphasised over bulky muscles. More effective breathing techniques form part of the practice. Pilates is fairly easy on the body and can be taken up by most people regardless of shape, size, age or exercise experience.
Athletes and dancers use it to improve their performance. It’s helpful for people suffering from neck, back or shoulder pain.
Pilates transforms the body by developing long, lean, strong muscles, a flattened tummy, firmer bottom and better posture.
Classes run as an eight week course.
It is vital to learn the basic principles from the start to gain maximum benefit, therefore if you are unused to regular exercise, have injuries, pain or illness or are new to Pilates a one to one session is recommended.
Please contact me to arrange a personal session.
Please arrive no more than 10 minutes beforehand as the door closes promptly at the start of the class. You’ll need a Yoga mat, towel and water.
