The Pilates Method is a mind-body centering technique which emphasises the importance of beginning movement from a central core of stability.
Pilates is for anyone of any level. It is used for prevention and recovery from injury, enhancing performance in sport and also makes the body more efficient for everyday life.
Matwork exercises are performed on the mat and are designed to promote core stability, flexibility, endurance, postural and body awareness and to correct muscle imbalances.
The exercises focus on strength, mobility and stretching and are progressed by the addition of arm and leg movements, and the use of resistance bands and other small equipment.
Pilates will help to improve your overall wellbeing through increasing core strength, balance, co-ordination, flexibility and relaxation of both the body and mind.
