ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR NEW BODY?
Flatter tummy and toned muscles. Better balance. Fitter and more flexible.
There are many health benefits with pilates. Firstly it can lead to improved flexibility. Pilates also encourages increased increased muscle strength and tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks (the ‘core muscles’ of your body). Participants also find balanced muscular strength on both sides of the body, as well as enhanced muscular control of the back and limbs.
Pilates is a lovely way to start or end the day. It can help wake up your muscles in the morning or it can help calm your mind in the evening ready for a good nights sleep.
Pilates is all about the mind-body connection. When you’re practising Pilates you’re in the moment, thinking only of your breathing and the physical movements. It can help to reduce stress and bring a feeling of calm and relaxation.
Pilates is also good for protecting your lower back and reducing tension in your shoulders and neck. And because Pilates focuses on body awareness, you’ll be less likely to suffer from aches, pain and injuries.
Pilates is the foundations behind any movement or sport. Whether you enjoy recreational running or heavy weight lifting Pilates will help you build and maintain strength from the inside out leading to improved and consistent sport performance.
Movement is medicine
There are many reasons why someone will do Pilates but movement really is medicine for your body. In classes you’ll learn the Pilates method to help you move the Pilates way, helping you take care of your body using precision and breath.
