Pilates is a complete, holistic, exercise method focusing on building your body’s core strength and improving your posture through a series of low repetition, low impact, stretching and conditioning exercises, restoring your body to achieve optimal complete balance. Whilst the fundamentals of Pilates are to develop core strength which includes: your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles, you will in addition to this, be working your whole body giving you a full total body conditioning workout.
As a consequence, with regular practice you will achieve increased mobility and flexibility. Pilates can be subtle, with gentle controlled movements that target specific muscles, and address balance in underlying muscle structures. To get the most benefit, it is advised that you commit to a series of classes, either group or 1-1 sessions. Joseph Pilates the founder suggested that “In 10 sessions, you feel better, 20 sessions you look better, 30 sessions you have a completely new body.” Pilates is included in a range of packages.
Danielle started Pilates after a difficult physical and emotional time. She wanted to get back to what she used to be. She didn’t want anything too physical and was more interested in rehabilitation and restoring balance to her physical and emotional self. With a strong focus on Pilates, 3 months into her programme she was moving with absolute confidence, walking, and sitting tall.
"I love the gentle exercises and the facts that they can be modified, and am feeling pretty good have to say. Who knew - Pilates for mind and body! I so needed this, and can't imagine where I would have been without these sessions. Thank you so much. I really do have a new lease of life."
