What it is
Pilates is a system of exercise devised by Joseph Pilates in the early part of the 20th Century. This system was designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the whole body, with particular attention given to the core.
Behind every movement are Joe’s main principles
- core activation
The aim is to strengthen and improve co-ordination and balance for the whole body. It has been proven to have some positive effects on non specific lower back pain, posture, joint alignment and stability.
This mode of exercise can be adapted for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. From elite athletes to complete beginners. If you participate in sports already then Pilates can add more flexibility, strength and balance to your game.
