What is Pilates?
Pilates is a refreshing mind & body exercise program, which focuses on core stabiity and posture, aiming to lengthen and strengthen muscles, targeting not only the stronger muscle groups but also the weaker ones, creating a more balanced body, with better joint mobility, more natural movement patterns and an increased awareness of correct body alignment which will lead to good natural posture.
Pilates is a controlled form of exercise that targets muscles with precision. Clients will quickly see an improvement in themselves and their bodies including more flexibility, more strength, better posture and a decrease in neck and back pain As Pilates challenges the mind, creating calmness and facilitating relaxation it promotes a less stressed feeling. - great for those who need to de-stress.
Would it be suitable for me?
Pilates is suitable for both men and women of any age and any level of fitness. Originally popular amongst dancers, pilates is now popular with not only elite athletes but also the general public - the Body Control Method breaks down the exercises into managable stages, allowing clients to work safely and effectively towards the more advanced exercises, whilst, at the same time, allowing those clients who wish to work at a lower level the option to still do so.
The higher advanced movements are great for sports people wanting a challenging routine to improve performance, prevent injury or just for an effective workout. By restoring balance to the body it is helpful for people whose sport favours a certain side such as golf, tennis or badminton.
Because of its controlled approach, many Doctors, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors now recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise available because it places minimal stress on the joints and heart. Perfect for those wishing to reduce back pain, those recovering from or who suffer from specific injuries or those who just want to improve their flexibility, their fitness, have flatter tummies or simply have some time to themselves.
