Pilates is a body conditioning method that works by targeting the deep postural muscles. This re-balances the body and corrects postural alignment. It improves body awareness and focus, releasing tension as you exercise.

Pilates is a slow, controlled approach making it suitable for people with back problems, after injury and first time exercisers. They are supervised private sessions as mat based exercises targeting specific core muscles and improving flexibility under control.
