Pilates is a wonderful discipline developed by Joseph Pilates. It endeavours to strengthen the “core” while also increasing flexibility. This form of exercise is not only for those who have back pain but is equally beneficial for all sportsmen, golfers and everyone who values good posture and an efficiently functioning physique.
I teach Pilates on a one-on-one basis or with a maximum of 3 students per class. A combination of mat work, ball work and classic Pilates equipment is used depending on the client’s level of strength and needs. Each session is one hour long and incorporates flexibility, balance and strengthening exercises. It is always strongly suggested that a minimum of 8 classes are done individually before joining a group class.
Classes are not “one size fits all” as each person is different with varying needs and levels of fitness and strength. This is an incredibly effective form of exercise which I highly recommend for all age groups and levels of physical capabilities. Learn to engage your core stabilisers correctly and banish your pain and discomfort!
Pilates is a wonderful form of exercise which strives to strengthen the “core” of the body and improve postural imbalances and in so doing lessen pain, enhance strength and flexibility in athletes and non-athletes alike. Every single person – from a stressed executive to an elderly woman, with Tri-Athletes and iron men in-between – benefits from Pilates. The studio is fully equipped with a treadmill, stability balls, TRX’s, a Pilates Reformer, chair, and wall unit.
