Strengthen your core muscles and enhance your posture with Pilates.
Pilates is a slow, controlled form of exercise designed to tap into the deeper muscle tissues in the body that help support the spine, and gently pull the stomach and pelvic floor muscles in and up.
The exercises can help to improve suppleness and flexibility and is particularly beneficial to those overcoming back, knee and hip problems. Pilates can be taken up by anyone mobility, fitness and age is immaterial.
Do you feel it’s time to align your body with your mind and soul? Book a one-to-one Pilates session, or create a booking for you and a small group of friends.
Try Pilates for yourself
In one-to-one or small group sessions, you’ll enjoy a workout that is custom-made just for you or you and a friend, or friends. Sessions include matwork and small equipment; specialist one-to-one bookings can include or be reformer based.
Correct alignment, mobility and flexibility in the body can lead to a happy and healthy life.
Fitness experts and medical practitioners know this, which is why you’ll see pilates and yoga as part of regular training programmes, and why your GP may suggest pilates to aid recovery after injury, maintain better posture, and to resolve pain caused by bad posture in the working environment.
