Pilates is a Method of exercise that conditions the whole body and is based around improving your core stability and using correct muscle movements. Along with the physical work Pilates also focuses the mind on breathing and connecting with the body.

Pilates uses specifically designed movement patterns and specialised equipment to achieve and restore musculoskeletal balance concentrating on a strong core or centre, which includes the abdominals, pelvis and back. Therefore Pilates is not only great for overall strengthening of the body, but also for the rehabilitation of injuries. Having established a reputation in back and spinal care, Pilates has a unique ability to work in a non-impact environment while targeting weak muscles to increase the bodies functional support system.

Pilates is a fantastic workout that is not only successful but also a lot of fun.
