Pilates is a form of gentle exercise that focuses on building strength from your core. It works specifically on the muscles in your tummy, around your pelvis and in your back, neck and shoulders.

Pilates can be used as both a regular form of exercise to promote good balance, alignment, posture and flexibility, as well as being used to help restore strength to weakened or damaged muscles after childbirth, illness or injury.


What are the benefits of pilates?

Regular pilates sessions can be beneficial in all sorts of ways. Many people do pilates for general strength and fitness because it is a gentle, low-impact form of exercise. It is also particularly helpful for people who have a limited range of movement or specifically want to work on recurring issues related to posture or balance.

Benefits of pilates include:

  • Release stress
  • Improve posture and balance
  • Increase awareness of your body alignment
  • Improve co-ordination
  • Prevention of injury
  • Rehabilitation from injury
  • Ante-natal and post-natal fitness
  • Improved technique for sports enthusiasts and athletes
  • General fitness and core strength
