What is Pilates?

Pilates is a holistic exercise system designed to strengthen, lengthen, tone and balance the entire body. It improves your posture, releases stress and increases strength and flexibility. Pilates works the deeper muscles in a focused manner strengthening core postural muscles and developing correct body alignment. This stabilises the spine and supports the back. Most importantly, Pilates is carried out with a high level of mental awareness, which is important for changing habitual movement and postural patterns.
