Pilates

What Is Pilates?

Pilates was first invented by its founder Joseph Pilates who started to use his method around 80 years ago, which became very popular with dancers, gymnasts and athletes. Joseph Pilates noticed that when people had a weakness or unbalanced alignment in their body, they would over compensate another area. Consequently Joseph Pilates believed that is was most important to correct that weakness but to also re – train the body to avoid a re- occurrence of the weakness. Joseph Pilates belief that true wellbeing came from physical fitness and positive mental attitude.
Pilates has become very popular to the public off all ages and abilities due to the slow controlled movements that largely strengthen the core muscles that stabilize and maintain the spine, correct postural problems and re align the body. When training in Pilates you will bring mind and body together, centering on balance, precision, breathing and concentration.
