Pilates strengthens, tones and lengthens the body whilst concentrating and challenging the mind. It focuses on building your body’s core strength and improves your posture.
Joseph Pilates was born in Germany, in 1880. As a child he suffered from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever, and he became determined to overcome his fragility and develop a strong healthy body. He believed that the modern lifestyles, bad posture and inefficient breathing lay at the roots of poor health.
Based on his experiences he devised a series of exercises that enabled him to improve his health, and to develop a strong and fit body. During World War I in 1912 he was interned with other German citizens in a camp on the Isle of Man, where he trained other inmates in fitness and exercises. Here the beginnings of the Pilates Method began to take shape.
Pilates strengthens, tones and lengthens the body whilst concentrating and challenging the mind. It focuses on building your body’s core strength and improves your posture through a series of low repetition, low impact stretching and conditioning exercises.
It can be adapted to suit individual requirements, working the deep core muscles to correct posture, strengthen the back, abdominals and pelvic floor muscles and helps recovery after an injury as well as re-balancing the body after childbirth.
It helps you to develop an awareness of how your body works, helping your mind and body work in harmony.
