The Pilates method was developed over 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates 1881-1967. His technique unites mind and body to improve strength, flexibility, mobility, overall health and a sense of well-being. The Pilates method is designed to restore balance to the body and develop efficiency in movement. The technique is particularly helpful in uncovering areas of imbalance in the body, working to correct this can help to prevent injury. Classes will focus on specific areas individually, whilst also using exercises that integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum function.
‘Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.’ Joseph Pilates
