Pilates evolved from the principles of its founder, Joseph Pilates. It consists of innovative mind-body exercises consisting of mat exercises, a variety of equipment and props (such as the pilates ball, foam roller and resistance band). These exercises can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. Pilates builds strength and endurance while improving flexibility and balance.
Pilates mainly focuses on body awareness and maintaining a good posture.
Exercises have been used successfully in alleviating back pain and re-alignment of the body.
Exercises are ‘low-impact’ which make it safe and suitable for all age groups.
