What can pilates help with?
Pilates exercises helps to strengthen the muscles that support and stabilise the core postural muscles of your body to improve strength, general fitness and wellbeing. The exercises work by building strength from the inside out. Rebalancing posture, improving muscle tone, balance and joint mobility and bringing the body into correct alignment. Pilates has something to offer men and women of all ages, all abilities and fitness levels.
I teach the Stott Pilates Method to bring the highest quality, safest and most effective workouts. I have been teaching and training in the fitness industry for over 15 years. My passion for Pilates began four years ago when I sustained a shoulder and hip injury whilst teaching. I tried everything to sort out the problem but it was not improving. This was when I was introduced to Pilates which not only rehabilitated my shoulder and hip injury but improved my strength and flexibility. It also became a means to injury prevention, control and mind and body awareness.
I have seen just how effective Pilates can be in not only helping the rehabilitation process, but also as a helpful adjunct to the prevention of injury. Many of my clients newly introduced to Pilates appreciate the beneficial effects of the technique, from improvement of posture to regaining more mobility and freedom of movement.
I am Bryony and I have been practicing Pilates for 15 years. By practicing daily, it allows me to feel more light, spacious and free. I have a YMCA Level 3 Diploma in teaching Pilates. Pilates increases your strength both physically and mentally, improves your posture and balance thus reducing the risk of injury and allows you to connect to your highest self: the best version of you.
