Pilates is a form of exercise and rehabilitation that involves resistance exercise, stretches and dynamic movements designed to lengthen, strengthen, and align the body. These can be performed on a mat or using specialised Pilates equipment such as a reformer.
Regular Pilates practice aims to improve overall body awareness, posture, flexibility, strength, balance and muscle control. Pilates can also help you recover from injury, improve balance and coordination, and decrease the likelihood of re-injury.
Ultimately, Pilates aims to enable the body to move freely and efficiently during daily activities, occupations and sports. We have clients who are office workers who would like to address their niggly back pain through to elite runners who use Pilates to improve their running technique and prevent complaints such as hip pain due to muscle fatigue.

At the end of each class, there will be time to stretch to assist in recovery and improve flexibility.
