Pilates

Many clients come to us because they have heard that Pilates can help with back pain, or give you better Abs or core stability. But whatever the reason, our clients enjoy their journey into Pilates with our one-on-one teaching which is focused on the clients specific requirements. It is gentle, safe and effective way to exercise, and the beauty of doing it on the reformer is that we adjust the level of intensity to suit your own body.

The ‘reformer’ equipment (pictured above)  is a great way to start exercising after an injury. The equipment is so gentle, and this combined with the fundamental principles of Pilates – precise movements performed in a safe way – will help you regain your strength and posture. If you have back injuries or muscular imbalance, it’s a great way to regain your strength. The focus on postural work during your class will help your spinal alignment and continued practice will help decrease the risk of future injuries.

During pregnancy, it can be hard to find workouts to suit your changing body. Pilates is excellent for expecting women, as it incorporates core, pelvic floor and posture exercises. Doing Pilates while you’re pregnant will significantly help you recover after giving birth – not only will you have an easier time physically caring for your new bundle of joy, you will also bounce back quicker to the shape you were before.

The beauty of reformer Pilates is that, unlike some other physical activity, it can be done everyday. It is gentle enough that it wont tear our muscles, yet can be challenging enough to keep you excited. One important difference between mat Pilates and reformer Pilates is that there are so many more movements and exercises on the reformer – without even getting too into the equipment, there are over 250 movements! The variety of the movements that you do, teamed with the skill and focus of Jo and Helen will ensure that your Pilates session will always be different, hitting your body and your mind from all different angles !
