Pilates exercise improves the balance between the muscle groups of the body. The exercises stretch and strengthen the muscles helping to create a good natural posture. This helps underlying joints to move better.
Improving movement within the body can help reduce or alleviate pain and discomfort
Pilates is taught in two ways: via mat classes in a group setting, and studio sessions taught on a one-to-one basis.
