Pilates is a total mind-body conditioning exercise programme. Pilates focuses on developing your core stomach and back muscles to create a stable centre from which you will develop posture, strength, tone and a more confident body image.
Pilates and Your Back
Research into back and neck pain has proven that rehabilitation of the core stabilising muscles reduces pain and prevents its reccurence. As pilates targets these core muscles it is a valuable way of helping you to return to work and leisure activities.
Pilates and Pregnancy
Pilates is a safe and effective method of exercise to continue both during and after your pregnancy. As well as assisting your body in adapting to the changes and stability challenges that will occur through pregnancy, pilates will aid relaxation, circulation, breathing control and flexibility.
Pilates and Sport
Pilates is used as part of any valuable sports training regime to improve fitness and performance. It plays an essential role in injury prevention & recovery and is used widely in elite sports medicine. Each sport and each individual have very specific requirements, therefore it is essential to following a prescribed programme.
