Pilates is low-impact and trains several muscle groups at the same time, targeting your deep postural muscles, building strength from the inside out, rebalancing your body and bringing it into correct alignment. It helps reshape your body, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility.

Pilates improves muscle elasticity and joint mobility. Your entire body is balanced and conditioned, helping you to enjoy daily activities, improve your physical performance and reduce the risk of injury.

For athletes, Pilates can complement our other training program by developing whole-body strength and flexibility, while also reducing the risk of injury.
The Benefits of Pilates include:
Flexibility - Joint mobility - Posture - Balance - Bone and muscle strength Coordination - Stamina - Energy levels
Self-esteem - Confidence - Injury prevention - Rehabilitation

The Fundamentals of Pilates

By paying close attention to correct spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing and connection with the centre, your mind becomes acutely attuned to the body.

Focusing on correct alignment allows muscles to work effectively without putting excessive strain on one muscle group over another. As your alignment improves, so will your posture. You will find that you put less pressure on sensitive joints such as knees and hips. You will also notice an improvement in the natural movement of the shoulder girdle (the bony arch formed by the collarbones and shoulder blades).
Breathing is a key factor in helping to mobilise and stabilise the body during exercises. Breathing also helps relieve stresses and tensions in the mind and body. As you focus on breathing, you become more aware of inhalation and exhalation, which in turn will have a positive impact on your day-to-day life.
In Pilates, the centre refers to the deep abdominal muscles and those closest to the spine. Centring is the feeling of connection to these inner muscles and helps to stabilise and control the pelvis and spine.
A strong centre enables you to perform daily tasks or engage in sports safely and more effectively. It also helps support the back. Pilates movements stem from a strong core and are often recommended to reduce back pain.
