Pilates is a mind body conditioning exercise programme that targets the deep postural muscles of the spine and abdomen to improve overall core stability and posture.
Fitness and health...
The main aim of Pilates is to build an efficient central core of stability muscles that stabilise the trunk and spine - this is achieved through both mental and physical training.
The mind is trained to become more aware of body posture, while the deep postural and stability muscles are activated. Muscle imbalances are corrected which results in overall improved body alignment.
Controlled precise and flowing movements means that muscle and ligament damage sometimes associated with other exercise regimes is avoided. This is why Pilates plays such an important part in many injury rehabilitation programmes.
The Mind and Body are brought together through the following 8 Principles.
- Co ordination
- Flowing movemnents
All instructors are fully qualified Chartered Physiotherapists and are members of the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute(APPI), and are highly experienced practitioners in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems. The classes have a small number of participants to ensure precise and corrrect movements are learnt to improve overall core stability.
