What are the benefits of Pilates?
Pilates is designed to optimise movement based on the human anatomy. Pilates builds strength, increases mobility and flexibility and improves alignment in the whole body – which helps to reduce aches, pains and chances of injury. All while being low-impact and training balanced muscle development. This makes it suitable for ages 10 – 100 and for everyone of all walks of life – from professional athletes to pregnant ladies. At The Moving Body Group, we teach Pilates and movement that is tailored to enhance your lifestyle, answer your needs and help you reach your health and wellness goals. PS: Pilates also reconnects body with mind, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself more relaxed and mindful after each session! The emotional benefits will make an impact in your life too!
Is Pilates good for sport?
Totally! No matter which sport you enjoy, during sport-specific training you tend to use the same muscle groups repetitively, which can cause muscle imbalances that might hinder performance. That is when Pilates comes into the picture, it is a full-body workout that also targets the smaller muscles groups that athletes and even the laymen tend to forget. World famous athletes like Maria Sharapova, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lebron James and Tiger Woods all do Pilates to complement their training and to maintain at their peak athletic performance.
I like high intensity, fast-paced workouts - would Pilates be too easy for me?
You’d be surprised that even professional athletes will find Pilates challenging if they have never experienced it before. Pilates requires a good mind-body connection that takes brain power, control and strength, as it requires you to engage and isolate the correct muscles and to be more aware of your movement patterns. So Pilates definitely challenges you – just in a different way from your HIIT workouts. Although we do also have Reformer HIIT group classes which combine a cardio workout with the precision of Pilates exercises – all on the moving platform which is the Reformer carriage! Good luck!
What is GYROTONIC®?
GYROTONIC® is a movement method developed by former professional dancer, Juliu Horvath with the intention to rehabilitate dancers and help them regain strength and agility. The GYROTONIC® Method has since expanded to benefit everyone from all walks of life. Its unique three-dimensional spiralling and circular movement flow will stretch out all your kinks, increase your range of motion, and strengthen your core and limbs, undoing long hours of a modern sedentary lifestyle by moving your spine in all directions.
Who is GYROTONIC® good for?
GYROTONIC® is good for anyone looking to improve posture, increase range of motion, improve flexibility and mobility, and to reduce their risk of injuries. Depending on your needs, the GYROTONIC® Expansion System can be utilised and adjusted to suit the needs of the individual from – relieving injury strain and lower back pain, to strengthening cardiovascular fitness. In many ways, it’s also an antidote to tech neck and sedentary modern life, and has even been described as the most satisfying self-massage!

I have an injury, can I still exercise?
This will largely depend on how extensive your injury is. Our team of instructors and physiotherapists can access your injury and plan the best course of rehabilitation and recovery. You can check out the range of services that we offer here.
I am pregnant, or planning to conceive. Can I take Pilates or GYROTONIC® classes?
Exercise is generally good for the body, even prior to, or during pregnancy. However, intentions to exercise should be communicated to your obstetrician so that you mitigate any complications, as everyone’s body is different.
The rule of thumb is always to understand your body, and not to push it too far.
If you are pregnant, you are still welcomed to partake in Pilates or GYROTONIC® group classes provided that your obstetrician is informed and is agreeable. Please inform our instructors as well, so that we know to modify exercises for you if necessary. Even better, try our prenatal reformer Pilates classes as those will aim towards supporting your pregnancy specifically.
