What is Pilates?

My DROP-IN Pilates classes take place on a Tuesday night in Magdalen Hall on Purbrook Street SE1 3DT -  details below or email for more info : info@alessandramargarito.com

In my pilates classes I combine the precision and strength work of Pilates with the fluid Somatic movements of Feldenkrais, the deep release work of Restorative Yoga and the stress releasing breath-work of Yogic Breathing; Pranayama.

Pilates is a holistic exercise system designed to strengthen, lengthen, tone and balance the entire body.
