Pilates is a holistic exercise system designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance; so much more than just building a 'strong core' or 'perfect posture'. Exercises involve the whole body, sometimes utilising small equipment. I believe that Pilates gives us a greater understanding and sense of our bodies. Healthy joints and lengthened bodies with muscles in balance. Allowing you to be the person you need to be whether your goal is to feel less stiff, carry the shopping, play with family, or to set a new personal best in your chosen sport.
