“In 10 sessions you will feel a difference, In 20 sessions you will see a difference and in a 30 sessions you will have a new body”
Joseph Pilates

About Pilates


The Pilates method concentrates on strengthening the core muscles in order to benefit the whole body.  To this end, we strengthen from the inside out.  Instead of strengthening muscles that we can see very readily such as the rectus abdominis - to achieve the much revered six-pack, Pilates will work with deeper muscles first.

For example, one muscle we do a lot of work with is the transversus abdominis which lies beneath the rectus and  when toned  will kick in a whole sequence of events and ideally benefit the whole body.  With regular Pilates exercise, we will inevitably change the way we move and essentially retrain the body to move correctly, using the correct muscles in the correct sequence. Pilates exercises require concentration and attention to detail, where a sense of wellbeing is felt from the very first session.


The result is a longer, stronger, more toned body with lovely long muscles you will be proud of. Exercises today are gentle to start with so that the body has time to adjust to the new movements, and hence you can enjoy the changes that are taking place in your body. With practise, postural defects can be corrected and you will greatly improve your overall fitness. Not only will your body look great, it will feel fantastic too.
