What Is Pilates? Who Invented Pilates?
Pilates is a system of exercises originally developed by Joseph Pilates, we use spring resistance and body weight exercises to build uniform strength while maintaining flexibility.
Our main focus is on the “Powerhouse” which consists of the muscles of the abdomen, low back, and hips, and is more commonly referred to as “the core”.
We work to build a strong Powerhouse to improve strength, stability, flexibility, coordination and balance.
Who is Pilates good for? Can I do Pilates if I have an injury?
Pilates allows for exercises to be modified in degrees of difficulty. This means sessions can be tailored to suit any ability, and that those carrying injuries can be accommodated.
Intensity can also be increased over time as the body adapts to the exercises and becomes stronger allowing for a challenging workout no matter how long you’ve been practicing.
