There’s more to Pilates than developing “strong abs” or “core strength”. Pilates is an exercise system that focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body to improve balance, muscle-strength, flexibility and posture.
It was created by German-born Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s and incorporates elements of yoga, martial arts and Western forms of exercise.
Initially adopted by professional dancers in the US as an effective form of recovery after injury, Pilates has steadily grown in popularity around the world.
"If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old, if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young!
In 10 sessions you will feel the difference
In 20, you will see the difference
And in 30, you’ll have a whole new body!" Joseph Pilates
