Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is a low impact form of exercise.

Pilates exercise classes are designed to strengthen the deep abdominals, as well as the lower back and gluteal muscles. By strengthening your ‘core’ you provide the rest of your body with a strong, stable base from which to move.  We have outlined some benefits of attending regular Pilates exercise classes below.

Body Awareness

You will start to notice that your body benefits when you attend our Pilates classes. Benefits of Pilates - Women Practicing PilatesThese benefits can include a better sense of body awareness, and as a result of this improved posture. Your flexibility will also improve, and you may also find that practising Pilates complements other forms of activity that you participate in.

Improve your core & overall strength

As you get stronger, the exercises will get harder, allowing you to continually challenge your body and improve your core strength. The instructor will ensure clients are progressed at a rate that is suitable to each individual, so you can rest assured you will be working at a level appropriate to you.

Refresh your mind

By emphasising breathing and body movements you can learn how to co-ordinate these and how to control both your breathing and movements. This allows you to finish our classes feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Improve sports performance and prevent injuries

By strengthening muscles and improving muscle elasticity, regular practice of Pilates can help to reduce the likelihood of injuries.
