Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early part of the 1900's. It is a revolutionary exercise regime with a holistic fusion of Eastern and Western philosophies which Joseph Pilates called "Contrology" and which later became known as Pilates technique.
The main principles behind Pilates is to promote good posture through the alignment of the major muscle groups and to develop strength without adding bulk with flexibility and good breathing technique to establish strong and healthy core stability.
Pilates is for everyone - male or female, young or old at any fitness level, and is an invaluable tool in the rehabilitation of physical injuries, where core stability and strength been affected.
"The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning develops the body uniformly, corrects posture, restores vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit"
