“In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body”    –  Joseph Pilates

Joseph Pilates first referred to Pilates as ‘contrology’ which we now think of as stability. He developed the Pilates technique to improve his health as he suffered with rickets as a child. He believed that poor lifestyle choices, bad posture and inefficient breathing lead to poor health. Pilates helps you to become more aware of your posture and make appropriate changes.

What you can hope to gain from my Pilates classes? Developing your core muscles which include abdominals, obliques and lower back. Pilates is a low impact style of exercise, so it’s great for anyone with joint pain or joint conditions and for anyone recovering from injury. Pilates looks at realigning the body and balancing out muscle groups to prevent re-occurrence of an injury and reduction in muscle or joint pain.

Pilates is great for toning and building strength, changing body shape and posture and helps you with body awareness for your everyday movements. It’s great for improving mobility and flexibility making you feel more agile; and can improve body imagine and body confidence.

“The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning develops the body uniformly, corrects posture, restores vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit”
