Approaching the body as a whole

Pilates is a technique that approaches the body as a whole, working to improve strength mobility and alignment. The focus is on the what Joseph Pilates called the “power house”, the centre of our bodies or “core strength”. These muscles of your core work in a synergistic manner to maintain good posture and support the spine and the pelvis.  

Pilates is considered to be a mind-body workout because it requires a higher level of concentration to perform the exercises correctly and that requires you to be present in your body. 

Pilates is beneficial for athletes that want to prevent injury and for ordinary people who have stressful lives and want to exercise in a way that improves their well being and strength without the intensity of a gym workout.

The beauty of Pilates is that it can be modified to challenge the strongest athlete or adjusted for someone that has never exercised before. 

That is one of the reasons for its popularity, everyone can do it and get as much as they want out of it!
