What is Pilates?

Developed by it's founder, Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a complete form of exercise that works the whole body, re-balancing muscles, building core strength and improving physical health.


Pilates helps build a strong core from which one can transition into new positions and exercises. This flow centres around control and precision, with a diversity of exercises and modifications to suit a range of levels from beginner to advanced. ​


Pilates is one of the best investments you can make for your body and can be used in a PREhabiliative way (ensuring a stronger, more powerful body) as well as taking a REhabiliative approach to your health, fitness and wellbeing. Use it to enhance everyday activities or to complement and improve your sporting activities.
