How it Works

Pilates is an excellent form of exercise designed to increase your core stability muscles. Pilates uses a combination of exercises which challenge the muscles of the core by using your own body weight or small pieces of equipment.

The History of Pilates
Pilates began in the 20th century by a man called Joseph Pilates. Joseph suffered with a number of childhood illnesses and which led to him studying Zen, yoga and ancient Greek exercise regimes in an attempt to gain immunity.Find out more
How Pilates Works
Pilates works by exercising the deep core muscles in the body. These are the stabilising muscles which lie deep around the spine and pelvis to provide the body with support. Weak core stability and gluteal muscles lead to an increased load on the spine and pelvis, often resulting in joint and muscle pain in these areas.Find out more
