Joseph Pilates

“A few well designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence are worth hours of doing sloppy exercise or forced contortion” – Joseph Pilates

This is Joseph Pilates, the man to thank for developing ‘contrology’ the exercise system we know today as Pilates.

Pilates is an exercise method using precise and controlled movements which work towards restoring physical and mental balance which, with regular practice will improve your posture whilst reducing muscles tension and daily stresses placed on the spine and joints.

Pilates provides an all over body workout incorporating the six unique principles of; Alignment, Centre, Breathing, Focus, Control and Flow.

Please note: although I promote Joseph’s original teachings I don’t stand on my clients regardless of how advanced they are!
