Pilates is not just a series of exercises, it is a way of life. It will not only change the way you look, but how you think and feel, increasing your understanding of your body, the most precious gift we have.

Pilates is a body conditioning method that works in a different way to other fitness techniques. Targeting the deep postural muscles, Pilates works by building strength from the inside out, re-balancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. It helps to reshape your body, which will become longer, leaner and more toned. It will also improve your posture, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility, and it is a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension. It's slow, controlled approach means that it gives much longer-term results - and it is especially recommended by medical specialists for those with back problems. In mat work classes particular attention is paid to strengthening the core abdominal and back muscles. This is the ultimate exercise for anyone who wants a toned, strong and aligned body. Pilates is subtle, gentle on the body and not too strenuous. It is about movement and how to use muscles in a way that work for you, in harmony with the breath.
