What is Pilates

Pilates is a method of physical conditioning designed to:

  • improve postural and spinal support
  • increase flexibility
  • build core strength and stability
  • develop efficient functional movement patterns
  • address and prevent imbalances and injury

The founder of the Pilates Method was Joseph Pilates, a German born American. Joseph Pilates had a fitness, yoga and self-defence background and developed the Pilates Method while rehabilitating soldiers during World War 1. The Pilates method has evolved into a complex conditioning program valuable for anyone requiring physical conditioning and/or rehabilitation regardless of  age and level of fitness. The improvements to your body are achieved through unique, progressive Pilates movement sequences which combine the use of floorwork, special Pilates machines, equipment and free weights.
