Pilates is an ideal workout to include in your week to increase your strength, flexibility, and stability, with an element of cardio. A Pilates programme can help with many aspects of your physical and mental wellbeing including improving posture, breathing, and decreasing stress.
Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling. Pilates immigrated to the US in the 1920s and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method – which he called Contrology – for several decades.

There are many benefits that I love about Pilates. The one thing that got me hooked is that during the session you cannot think about anything else. All worries, stresses and anxieties melt into the background while you feel your body working and moving. As the tension disappears, the sense of strength and well-being takes over until you leave feeling taller, leaner and even graceful!
Pilates has changed the way I view my body, the way I think about my health and my well-being. My aim is simple: to share the bountiful benefits of this fantastic exercise system with as many people as possible. Young or old, top athlete or couch potato, whether you can touch your toes or just your nose, you can gain something from each class and I’d love to have you join in.
