What is Pilates ?


Pilates targets the deep postural muscles, building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. It helps to reshape your body, which will become longer, leaner and more toned.

It will also improve your posture, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility, and is a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension.

It is ideal for first-time exercisers but is also perfect for athletes looking to improve their performance and minimise their risk of injury. Its slow, controlled approach means it gives longer term results which will change the way you use your body.

The movements in Body Control Pilates are based on the work of Joseph Pilates (1880 - 1967) who created a series of exercises that built strength without adding bulk but balanced that strength with flexibilty.
