Pilates

Pilates is a holistic exercise system designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance.

Pilates is effective as it addresses underlying structural imbalances in the body which can create on-going pain and difficulty with movement. Lengthened and strengthened muscles improve posture and overall fitness and retrain dysfunctional movement patterns, restoring optimum physical function.

Principles of Pilates

Pilates is based on the following principles: Breath, whole-body health and whole-body commitment; with the whole-body encompassing mind, body and spirit.

It is in the honouring of these Pilates Principles that the depth of the work is achieved. These Principles are traditionally cited as:

  • Breath

  • Concentration

  • Centring

  • Control

  • Precision

  • Flow


"Above all, learn how to breathe correctly." - Joseph Pilates
