‘The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.’ – Joseph Pilates
The Pilates method is a holistic movement discipline. The exercises include floor based movements and apparatus work, with a focus on elongating and strengthening the body. Pilates uses slow, controlled and precise movements along with optimal deep breathing practices to retrain movement patterns. The emphasis on quality of movement and correct alignment results in restored function, health and wellbeing throughout the body.
Pilates is suitable for everyone of any age and condition. The repertoire ranges from the corrective exercises at the remedial level right through to the super advanced to challenge even the most athletic bodies.
