What is Pilates?
Pilates is a gentle and effective form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates. Exercises focus on the deep postural muscles of the back and abdomen to improve core stability and strength. Pilates exercises combine strength and flexibility, which helps to rebalance the body and restore normal/natural movement.
These muscles are: Transversus Abdominus, the diaphragm, a back muscle called Multifidus, and the pelvic floor muscles. Together they form a cylinder of stability around the spine. This is called the central core in Pilates. Re-training these muscles helps to increase spinal stability which can help to reduce back pain.
A range of Pilates equipment such as the foam roller, gym ball, and theraband are used in our classes, complimenting mat-work exercises. This combined approach keeps the classes progressive, stimulating, motivating, appealing and fun.
Pilates exercises are modified and tailored to your needs and are suitable for all ages and abilities. It can be appropriate for those returning to exercise or for the athlete keen to avoid injury. Classes are small to guarantee individual attention and this ensures the exercises are performed correctly.
