What is Pilates?

What is Pilates

Pilates is a mental and physical body-conditioning programme that uses exercise and concentration to develop body awareness, improving and changing the body’s postural alignment habits. The Pilates fundamentals: alignment, breathing and core stability (the ABC’s), provide the framework on which the method is based.

Learning how to align your body in its correct position before working through a range of low impact exercises, plus using breath to facilitate activation of your core stabilising muscles in the lower abdomen and back, mean you’ll feel toned and stretched in all areas of the body. This results in increased strength and flexibility in all muscles and joints allowing ease of movement. Your balance and stamina will improve and if wanting to rehabilitate, you will work to try and restore full mobility.

By taking the principles of Pilates into everyday life, you can start to become more aware of your ideal posture and learn how to move safely whether you’re gardening, weightlifting or just standing in the queue at the supermarket!

Pilates is easy to get started in and depending on your goals, can be as gentle or challenging as you’d like it to be. It’s suitable for all ages and abilities and with different levels of classes, there’s something to suit everyone’s needs.

Joseph Pilates said, "In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body". Of course, results will vary by person, but rest assured the more regularly you practice Pilates, the faster you’ll feel the benefits and see the difference.

What is Body Control Pilates®?

Body Control Pilates® (www.bodycontrolpilates.com), co founded by Lynne Robinson over 20 years ago, draws on the latest sports and medical research to ensure the Body Control Pilates approach is safe and effective.

They have broken down many of the original classical exercises so they can be taught progressively. By breaking down the original exercises, you will gradually learn about your own body awareness and will start to recognise good posture and alignment, increase your strength, balance and flexibility and gain control of your movements with improved coordination. Each of the exercises, practised and taught correctly, will lead you closer to Joseph’s original work and will work towards giving you the keys to a stress free mind and a body free from tension and pain.
