The Pilates Method is for anyone and everyone – no matter what your level of fitness or age

Joseph and Clara originally termed their form of exercise “Contrology” and encouraged the use of the mind to control the muscles.

  • Helps to keep the human body balanced and provide support for the spine.
  • Pilates teaches awareness of breath, alignment of the spine and strengthens the deep torso and abdominal muscles.
  • Helps to build flexibility, long lean muscles, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back, without forming bulk.
  • It places emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing to relieve stress and enhanced oxygen flow to muscles.
  • Develops a strong core (tones abdominals while strengthening the back), and improves co-ordination and balance. Nagging back-ache and head-aches, sore stiff necks and even old injuries will improve.
  • Pilates’ adaptable system allows for the different exercises to be modified in a range of difficulty from beginner to advanced.
  • No muscle group is under or over-trained as the exercises are performed very precisely and work a number of muscle groups at the same time.
  • It enhances core strength and brings increased reach, flexibility, sure-footedness and agility.

“In 10 sessions, you will feel the difference in 20, you will see the difference and in 30 you’ll be on your way to having a whole new body.”
