Pilates is not just an exercise class it’s a way of life “In 10 sessions, you will feel the difference. In 20, you will see the difference and in 30 you’ll be on your way to having a whole new body.” Joseph Pilates

Pilates was developed in the early 1900s by a man called Joseph Pilates. It is an exercise regime which has been adapted over time and uses body conditioning exercises to strengthen and re-align the body. Pilates is for everyone, both men and women and any age group and has many benefits.

  • Tones the body and improves flexibility
  • Improves posture and alignment

Another couple of quotes from Joseph Pilates….

“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!”

“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.”
