Pilates is a series of exercises incorporating the whole body and its movement, with the initial focus on developing an activated and strong core.
Benefits of Pilates
The great thing about Pilates is that it’s good for everyone. From people who’ve had chronic back or neck pain, knee or shoulder injuries to pre and post-natal mums and everybody in between.
Pilates assists in developing strength and flexibility. This not only improves posture, but allows the body to cope with the load that is placed on it daily and during sport and recreation activities. It can help reduce tension and stress through improved breathing technique and postural awareness. There is also the overall sense of well-being associated with movement of the body in a controlled environment.
