so.. what is Pilates?
"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young."
Joseph Hubertus Pilates
The Pilates Method represents a unique approach to exercise that develops body awareness, improving and changing the body's postural and alignment habits and increasing flexibility and ease of movement.
The core fundamentals of the Method are based upon a thorough understanding
of the anatomy of the human body. The Pilates Teacher uses this information
to create a comprehensive exercise programme for each client with
the aim of restoring a greater sense of balance. It is this holistic
approach that sets the Method apart from many other forms of exercise.
Indeed, osteopaths, physiotherapists and general practitioners are now
recommending Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today.
