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 a balance between strength and flexibility, and it is a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension.

Pilates is ideal for first-time exercisers, while still eminently suitable for gym users, sports players or runners who need to enhance performance and minimise the risk of injury.  Its slow, controlled approach which combines mind as well as body control, means that it gives much longer-term results. It is especially recommended by medical specialists for those with back problems.

Pilates is available in small groups or one-to-one to help you to improve your own body: refining your posture, addressing your aches and pains and most importantly developing your core strength in order to retain (or regain) a more toned profile and an active healthy body.
