What is Pilates and is it for me?
Pilates combines aspects of yoga, gymnastics and the theory of "core" muscles being the foundation of the body. It is an exercise form designed to bring balance back to our bodies.
Often we have areas of tightness, weakness, pain and stiffness. Our balance may not be what it was and we can no longer perform movements or lift the weight we used to.
Pilates is all about making sure each muscle is performing its task correctly, working at the right time and not working when it doesn't have to.
Our movements in Pilates can seem slow and gentle, but they are very deliberate and we are retraining the body to achieve great alignment, balance, control, strength and posture.
