Rooted in Tradition
Pilates is a body-conditioning method devised by Joseph Pilates. Pilates believed that mental and physical health were interrelated and developed his system, which he called “Contrology”, to strengthen the human mind and body.
Align, Breathe, Centre
The Pilates ABCs, Alignment, Breathing, and Centring, are the fundamental building blocks for a strong, sustainable practice. They are supported by 5 other principles: Relaxation, Concentration, Co-ordination, Stamina, Flowing Movements.
Adapted for Modern Life
Modern life takes its toll on our bodies. Long days spent sat in front of the computer and not enough time moving can leave us feeling out of balance. Pilates can help to rebalance the body through teaching good movement skills.
