Why Pilates?

Pilates is based on putting yourself into unstable postures and challenging your body by moving your limbs. It improves muscle endurance, promotes better co-ordination and balance and your posture, flexibility and balance. 

Pilates is practiced by rugby players and ballerinas, MotoGP riders and swimmers, men, women and children, at all ages and stages of life. It is a challenging and versatile exercise that delivers long lasting physical and psychological benefits.
