Why Pilates

Pilates is suitable for all ages and abilities. Exercises are performed with slow controlled movements aimed at strengthening weak muscles and stretching tight muscles. Through Pilates, you will learn to move with complete awareness. The awareness you gain in a Pilate’s class will follow you off the mat to sitting at a desk or driving your car. All this helps you improve your bodies posture, muscle tone and balance.

Pilates is also recognized for helping with back issues decreasing back pain. Pilates can help you perform better in your chosen sport and also reduce the likely hood of injury.
