"Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit"
- Joseph Pilates, creator of the Pilates method
utilises breathing, centering, concentration, control, ease of movement and precision to help a person become aware of their body. It is a mind-body workout that creates a strong core, building long and lean muscles, improves posture and helps prevent injuries. It is one of the best forms of rehabilitative exercise recommended by health professionals.
These days, it seems everyone—from avid golfers and tri-athletes to everyday folks who want to breathe better and be more “body-aware”— are streaming into studios. Pilates
is the exercise choice for all because movements and intensity can be adapted easily to suit different body types or levels of fitness and flexibility, making it safe for everyone.
