My Pilates classes focus on core Pilates principles. Pilates builds functional strength, this means building strength throughout your body without compromising flexibility, and therefore good alignment and posture. It is a holistic fitness program which incorporates both eastern and western thinking.
Pilates requires you to focus on individual muscles and this added focus and concentration helps to create that mindful connection from your brain to your body.
Unlike many exercises which target the superficial muscles, Pilates goes deeper starting with your core muscles and working out creating a strong and supple body.
