Pilates targets the deep postural muscles, building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. It helps reshape your body, making it leaner and more toned and improves your posture, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility. Pilates is a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension providing a calmer, more relaxed mind.
It takes its name from Joseph Pilates, a German-born gymnast who devised the exercise method in the early part of the nineteenth century.
