Pilates is a body conditioning method that improves strength,flexibiilty,and posture without unnecessary strain. The exercises are performed both with and without specialised pilates equipment,using the resistance work to streamline  and strengthen the body.

Exercises are done with an emphasis on the abdominal area,breathing and controlled yet relaxed movements resulting in a strong physical centre. This core strength is essential for all kinds of movements  ranging from everyday activities to complex atheletic motions.

All classes are tailored to fit individual needs so the exercises can be as gentle or as challenging as required.Due to the efficiency of all the movements,fewer reps are required resulting in an engaging and invigorating workout.

People practice pilates for a variety of reasons ranging from reduction of pain caused by faulty alignment or injury,to pain free clients who simply want to achieve the best from their body and want a balanced and effective workout.The technique is therefore as valuable to the dancer, golfer or athlete as to the injured client. Muscular imbalances can be corrected and postural alignment improved.

It is safe to follow through pregnancy and offers a wonderful means of regaining strength and tone after the birth. Many health professionals recommend pilates as an ideal form of remedial exercise. Pilates creates recognizable change and will leave you feeling mentally and physically rejuvinated.
