Why do Pilates?

Whether you are just starting to exercise, you're an elite athlete or somewhere in between, Pilates will apply to you. It is whole-body fitness and, when done correctly, offers major health benefits. It has long been the exercise of choice for dancers and gymnasts, and now footballers and Hollywood actors.

Pilates trains the body to express itself with strength and harmony. The workouts develop core strength which helps to improve posture, stability and peripheral mobility.

In Pilates, we also work to improve your functional fitness and ease of movement, and hopefully increase your energy. Pilates creates strength, increases flexibility and improves balance and coordination. It also heightens body awareness.

Pilates is used to integrate body and mind, it complements other methods of exercise and improves performance in sport, including golf, skiing and skating. It provides a level of integrative fitness that is hard to find elsewhere and is why Pilates is so popular in rehabilitation.
