About Pilates

Pilates works to facilitate improvement, addressing alignment, imbalance, flexibility and strength. It focuses on using the correct muscles behind movement to align and support the body, particularly the spine.

Reformer pilates uses resistance equipment to train the body against weight, or with instability. It draws on Joseph Pilates’ original body conditioning and rehabilitation work to build healthy, aligned bodies and backs.

‘My chiropractor commented my core was so good that I didn’t need any adjustment of my lower back. A first in many years! Results!’

The mind, when housed in a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power
