Pilates recognises that in daily life muscles are regularly overused, underused and often misused, generally creating an imbalance in the body.  An imbalance such as this can lead to poor posture, which not only effects your body shape, but also your body's health.  Back related problems are a very common effect of poor posture or incorrect use of muscles.

Pilates is a unique form of exercise which concentrates on developing the deep postural muscles in order to help strengthen and align the body.  Most of the mat based exercises use the weight of your own body to provide the resistance, however some equipment may also be used in classes which give an added dimension to the exercises.  By attending a Pilates class you should become more aware of how you use the body in every day life.

The beauty of Pilates is that you can do this whilst targeting various body parts, helping to gain a better body shape, improving posture, flexibility and mobility whilst relieving tension from the body and mind.

"I love Pilates! You really feel like you have worked every part of your body. It's great for toning, relaxing and strengthening. Just remember to breath"

Tracey Chaplin
