An Overview of Pilates

Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing. Pilates exercises are done on a mat or using special equipment, such as the Reformer, the Cadillac and Wunda Chair. With its system of pulleys and springs, handles and straps, the apparatus can provide either resistance or support, depending on your needs.

Pilates has something to offer people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness, from beginners to elite athletes.

Benefits

  • May provide pain relief to people with non-specific lower back pain
