Pilates is a series of flowing movements designed to strengthen and stretch the muscles of the body. It focuses on the core muscles of the trunk to provide a solid base for movement, as well as working on the smaller stabilising muscles that ensure the larger global muscles of the body enjoy optimal functioning.
Clinical Pilates is highly popular among performing artists, athletes and sports people looking to enhance performance and minimise the risk of injury through the correction of faulty movements.
Latest research has highlighted the role of postural muscle control in the treatment and prevention of a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries. Pilates approaches the body as a whole and restores and teaches correct posture and movement, which is often out of balance due to our modern lifestyles.
