Pilates

The goal of Pilates is to support and refine the structure of the body through strengthening and conditioning. Classes can be mat-based or involve the use of special apparatus, designed to increase intensity for those who desire it and support those with physical impairments. 

The whole of the body is utilised in class, but special attention is given to the core, cultivating a stable support system for the back and skeletal system. As a result, practitioners feel empowered and strong. Pilates is especially beneficial to those recovering from sports injuries, and sufferers of back pain.

Pilates is accessible to all ages and abilities and can be made as gentle or challenging as required, depending on your personal needs and capabilities. The exercises, which are generally performed as a flow of movements, are low-impact, strengthening and toning muscles without adding bulk.
