What is Pilates?
Pilates is a very effective training method that can improve flexibility and both muscular strength and endurance of the back, abdominals, legs, arms and hips. Pilates has a particular emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing and core strength, as well as improving posture, balance and coordination. Classes and exercises can be modified to vary the difficulty, ranging from beginner to advanced. As a result of this, Pilates is well suited to everyone who wants to achieve a well-conditioned and looked after body and particularly those suffering from back problems. The gentle, low-impact nature of Pilates makes it highly recommended for everybody, no matter what their age.
