What is Pilates?
Pilates is an exercise approach developed by Joseph Pilates in the early to mid 1900s and was an evolution of many of the exercise principles of the time.
As Joseph had strong links with the dance community, Pilates is especially associated with dancers and has become synonymous, in more recent years, with “core stability”.
Over the years research on “core stability” has evolved. Using new advancements, the Pilates approach has been modified and enhanced to be more effective and more individualized.
The core stability muscles include the abdominals, back extensors, diaphragm and pelvic floor.
These muscles act together to support the lower back and pelvis and reduce the rotational forces placed on the lower back in our day to day lives. More and more evidence is relating to improved core stability to reduced back pain.
Our small friendly Exercise and Pilates classes are limited to three participants.
