Pilates is an exercise method designed to elongate, strengthen, gain endurance and restore the body to balance. It is based upon an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems. Sessions integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and General Practioners often recommend Pilates as one of the most effective forms of exercise today. Pilates can be beneficial for just about everyone, regardless of age and fitness level.
As Pilates can be done safely everyday or once a week it is easy to fit in with any lifestyle. Due to the flexibility within Pilates exercises and modifications that can be done it can be adapted to anyone, young, old, fit, unfit or even injured and disabled. I now love to try and help others rebalance their bodies, recover from injuries, assist to alleviate aches and pains and just generally make people fitter, leaner, stronger, lengthened and more aware of their own body.
The great thing about Pilates is that just about anyone can do it from couch potatoes to fitness fanatics and professional sports people.
