Pilates is a mind and body exercise method designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Started by Joseph Pilates for men at war during the World War II, Pilates was then transformed for ballet and contemporary dances. So as we like to say at the studio, when you do Pilates you will get strong like a warrior, but also work towards the flexibility and posture of a ballet or contemporary dancer. This ensures you get the best of both worlds.
Pilates exercises can be done on a mat or on special equipment such as the reformer, stability chair, Cadillac and ladder barrel. At the studio we work on the equipment as well as on the mat ensuring you get the maximum benefit out of the Pilates session. It is an ideal form of exercise to tone the core muscles, get leaner, longer, and more stable, improve strength and flexibility as well as reduce stress and improve mental wellbeing.
At our studio you will be empowered to discover your inner strength, transform your mind and body, improve core strength, increase stamina, improve your health and achieve a new and exciting physical well being.
It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from many other forms of exercise. Osteopaths, physiotherapists and general practitioner recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today. Pilates can be beneficial for just about everyone, regardless of age and fitness level.
