“In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 you’ll see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a new body.”
— Joseph Pilates
Benefits of Pilates
Pilates is classed as a muscle-strengthening activity, which can help you maintain a healthy weight. Classes can vary in intensity: they can be gentle, or dynamic and offer a solid workout. If you want to lose weight, you're advised to combine pilates with a healthy diet and some aerobic activities, such as swimming, walking and cycling
Pilates is a proven method of exercise that involves slow and precise movements which focuses on realigning joints and strengthening and rebalancing muscles.
Here are some of the ways in which consistently attending Pilates sessions can benefit you:
corrects misalignment, reducing the risk of wear and tear and risk of injury and back pain
prevents and manages low back pain
reshapes the body, creating longer, leaner and more toned muscles
increases flexibility and balance
strengthens your deep postural muscles
aligns and strengthens your spine, pelvis, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles
improves your posture and body awareness
more mobile joints and stronger bones
the use of controlled breath helps to undo physical tension helping to reduce stress and anxiety
... but don't just take my word, please come and try a class for yourself.
