Pilates is a method of exercise created by Joseph Pilates which improves muscular strength and function, improving posture and stability.

Our Pilates Instructor, Alison Mulford, teaches the Body Control Method of Pilates. This method promotes body awareness by infusing these eight principles into each exercise.

  • relaxation
  • co-ordination
  • alignment
  • stamina
  • concentration
  • centring
  • breathing
  • flow movements

We have filmed a short video to demonstrate the last principle – flow movements.

 

 

Many of the rehabilitation exercises I was taught while studying Chiropractic were based on Pilates. I remember thinking at the time that if/when I opened a clinic then I would want to offer Pilate’s classes for my patients as this exercise needs no special equipment, is suitable for any body type or level of fitness and therefore suitable for anyone.

If you are looking to improve your health/quality of life then join one of our Pilates Classes:

Saturdays:

9am – Circuit Class – for those that like to push themselves!

Pilates increases your body awareness, teaching you to control your body movement resulting in increased muscle tone, less injuries and improved posture which translates to looking good and a better quality of life.
