What is Pilates?

Everything you need to know

Pilates is a body conditioning method that works in a different way to any other fitness technique.

Developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), it targets deep postural muscles, building strength from the inside out. By using a set of principles designed to improve the quality of movement, Pilates can help with prevention and recovery of a variety of sports injuries.

Pilates helps rectify muscle imbalance and flexibility. Pilates builds on the body's core stability and balance. The perfect balance between strength and flexibility.

Who is it for?

Is pilates right for you?

Physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and doctors now recommend Pilates as one of the safest and most effective forms of exercise available.

The results you see from Pilates won’t just remain in the studio. You will learn to incorporate what you learn in your Pilates sessions into your daily lives – how you stand and walk, how you sit at the computer or drive a car, as well as more physical activities such as football, skiing, tennis, running, cycling, hiking, dancing or swimming. Pilates can work for everyone regardless of age or fitness level.
