What is Pilates?
Is pilates right for you?
Pilates is a series of 34 movements originally formulated in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. It revolves around the 6 basic principles of concentration, breathing, control, centring, precision, and movement.
By using Pilates exercises as part of your exercise routine or rehabilitation you can influence your strength, flexibility and mobility as well improving your posture.
Mat Pilates is very adaptable and can be easily altered to account for any injuries or limitations. These adaptations can be made with the use of equipment such as balls and bands to ensure correct muscle engagement and to reduce aggravation of injuries.
