Pilates Benefits

Pilates is an exercise regime based around improving core stability and understanding where your body is in space.  It involves using the breath to help create an intra-abdominal pressure which automatically engages the small stabilising muscles (pelvic floor, transverse abdominus, diaphram and mulifidus) to activate which in turn strengthens them.

“If your spine is inflexible at 30, you are old.  If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young”  Joseph Pilates
