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.
Core strength is the foundation of Pilates exercises. The core muscles are the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When the core muscles are strong and doing their job, they work in tandem with the muscles of the trunk to support the spine and enable movement. When the trunk is properly stabilised the body is able to move more freely and efficiently.
