What is Pilates?
The Pilates method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s and is a favourite form of exercise for dancers and athletes as well as those looking to improve the performance of their body.
Pilates involves movements designed to improve strength, flexibility, posture and coordination. It combines awareness of the body and correct breathing with exercises to achieve slimmer, longer, stronger muscles without building bulk.
