Pilates uses subtle, slow controlled movement yet achieves dynamic results. It is a proven toning and conditioning technique which concentrates on strengthening muscles without forcing them and helps improve posture and flexibility. Pilates is not new - it was developed over seventy years ago by Joseph Pilates. It is uniquely recommended by physiotherapists and osteopaths because of its gentle, safe, strengthening and realigning qualities. But don't be fooled. Whilst it may appear simple and serene it works deep within the body and delivers astonishing results for all ages and all bodies. From back pain and poor posture to targeting the areas that most people are concerned about - stomach, buttocks, thighs and arms - Pilates will enable you to achieve your desired goal.
