Over the last 20 years, Pilates has experienced the explosion on a global level. Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavour, but also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.
Practiced faithfully, Pilates yields numerous benefits. Increased lung capacity and circulation through deep, healthy breathing is a primary focus. Strength and flexibility, particularly of the abdomen and back muscles, coordination – both muscular and mental, are key components in an effective Pilates program. Posture, balance, and core strength are all heartily increased. Bone density and joint health improve, and many experience positive body awareness for the first time. Pilates teaches balance and control of the body, and that capacity spills over into other areas of one’s life.
Ante Natal Pilates:
Helen, our Chartered Physiotherapist, teaches modified Pilates which provides a number of positive benefits during pregnancy. You will be safely guided through exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, improving strength around the pelvis, upper body strengthening, maintaining flexibility and helping with posture and relaxation. This physio led Pilates class will be working your muscles from the inside out and helping you on your fitness journey throughout your pregnancy. This class is only available to book face to face, in small group settings, at our lovely Studio@NDP.
