Pilates for Core Strength
Pilates is a well-known exercise regime which focuses on increasing the strength of the deep core muscles. Pilates began in the US dance industry to treat injuries and improve performance and has since evolved into a popular form of exercise used worldwide.
How it works
The deep core muscles are deep in the trunk and act as a corset around the spine. Pilates works by exercising the deep core muscles to strengthen them through controlled movements and use of small equipment such as balls, resistance bands and magic circles. Strengthening the deep core muscles creates a strong central base for the body to support joints, reduce pain and improve posture.
Pilates takes you on a journey from New & Improving to Pilates Pros level exercises as your core strength increases. We offer sessions on a one to one basis in addition to New & Improving, Pilates Pros classes.
