WHAT IS PILATES?
piˈlätēz/ (prounciation).a system of exercises using special apparatus, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, posture, and enhance mental awareness(noun).
Originally created by a German man named Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920s, Pilates is a series of exercises designed to target the deep muscles of the abdomen and spine to strengthen the body from the inside out. It focuses on breath and proper alignment with the goal of achieving a balance of strength and flexibility. This creates better balance in the body which translates to your movement through all of life’s activities, improving your posture and muscle tone.
WHY CHOOSE EQUIPMENT PILATES?
The equipment we use in Pilates utilizes pulleys and springs to assist or resist movement using the participants own body weight. It provides extra resistance so that strength and stamina are built quicker than with mat work alone. The assistance the springs provide can also help clients suffering with injury to rediscover their range of movement and mobility, as the springs can take some of the body's weight. Clients also feel that they can get more feedback from the machines and it enables them to make and understand a better connection with their body. Specific areas can also be targeted where necessary.
