A more balanced you awaits.
Pilates is one of the fastest growing forms of exercise. Developed from the rehabilitation and physical therapy techniques of Joseph Pilates. it is an intelligent and scientifically proven form of exercise with emphasis on breathing, balanced spinal movement, concentration ,core control and full body alignment.
The quality of movement is valued over the quantity of movement. Pilates teaches us to be body aware ,breathe efficiently, move with little effort, concentrate better and develop a healthy body and mind.
PILATES REFORMER CLASSES
In the Pilates reformer classes we use specially designed machines called Reformers which provide extra resistance and assistance.The maximum number in one class is six people and these classes are very popular. We find that using a Pilates reformer enhances the learning process of Pilates and helps to improve strength, flexibility and muscle balance.This is extremely useful for rehabilitation, injury prevention and general wellbeing.
PILATES ONE TO ONE (1:1 Pilates and 2:1 Pilates sessions)
In Pilates one to one sessions (Pilates 1:1 and Pilates 2:1) you get to use all of the Pilates equipment which includes: Pilates reformer, Pilates chair, Pilates Barrell, Pilates Trapeze table and the new Pilates CoreAlign. These sessions are designed for people who have a specific goal in mind such as: rehabilitation, postural and movement enhancement, prenatal and postnatal care.
The Pilates one to one sessions (Pilates 1:1 ) focus on improving core strength, spinal mobility, stability as well as muscle flexibility. These are key requirements for a healthier body.
After suffering a bone or muscle injury it is common for people to take up Pilates in conjuction with physical therapy.
