What is Pilates?

The Pilates method is a form of exercise originally developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967).

Pilates aims to balance the body and to keep it flexible. By taking this balance and posture in to your everyday life, Pilates enables you to sit better at a desk, stand better in a queue and live with less stress on the joints.

Healthy Back Classes
Healthy Back classes are specifically for those with back pain.
Gentle effective exercise delivered by a properly trained professional, can often help with the prevention and management of low back pain. This was underlined by the publication in 2009 of medical guidelines recommending that people with persistent non specific low back pain should be encouraged to stay physically active and exercise. Non specific back pain is tension, soreness and or stiffness in the lower back region.
