Pilates is a complete body work out which builds core strength, stamina and flexibility through low impact conditioning exercises. Pilates transforms poor posture and restores the body to balance, ensuring each muscle is doing the right job and helping you to combat the stress and strains of modern day life. Regular practice in Pilates shows enhancement in sports performance as well as prevention of injury.
Pilates can work those muscles which are hard to reach! The exercises are dynamic yet low impact. Pilates helps isolate your deep core muscles which stabilise your spine, and therefore has been shown to help prevent back pain.
Pilates results in greater flexibility, joint mobility and strength and therefore you will move with better balance and posture. Pilates is proof that you don’t have to endure sweat and pain to get results, and is also beneficial in relaxing your mind, therefore improving your general wellbeing.
Pilates historically has been most popular with dancer, gymnasts and athletes. However, Pilates is suitable for almost everyone; men and women of all age groups and physical abilities.It can be particularly beneficial for desk-bound and less active individuals getting into activity, pregnant and postnatal women and those requiring pre & post injury rehabilitation.
Individuals who have joint pain, stiffness or arthritis and particularly those with back and neck and chronic pain can greatly benefit from Pilates.
