Pilates

Improve your flexibility. Build strength without bulk. Lengthen and streamline your body!

Pilates is an active method of balancing and strengthening, focusing on core stabilisation and postural alignment. Pilates is an amazing form of exercise that creates an internal physical transformation, and connects mind to body. Pilates is very versatile and can be adjusted to suit ANY body; EVERY BODY should include weekly Pilates in their life!

Unfortunately, everyday stresses can leave our bodies suffering with incorrect movement patterns and muscles imbalances that lead to pain, postural problems, and injuries – Pilates will re-educate your bodies movement patterns.


Regular Pilates will:

  • Improve your posture
  • Promote body awareness
  • Build your strength
  • Discover control
  • Maintain joint stability
  • Understand and use your core connection

Pilates will invigorate and energise your body through improved breathing, mind-body connection, and healthy muscle use.
