Why you should join our Pilates classes

Pilates is a form of exercise that was developed during World War I by Joseph Pilates, a German physical trainer. It helps to condition your muscles, improving strength and flexibility.  It especially focuses on developing your core muscles through small, controlled movements.

  • Pilates improves your muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and posture.
  • Pilates may also increase endurance and decrease joint pain if practiced often enough. It is often used to help recover from injuries.
  • Pilates is good for your mind – studies have shown that there is an interrelation between physical and mental health. Because Pilates also focuses on controlled breathing, it may offer you stress relief and mental clarity.
  • It is also a very fun way to exercise.

What you will need

You will only need a mat for our online Pilates classes. However, Pilates also uses specialised resistance equipment, such as the reformer, on which a wide variety of exercises can be done.

Everyone is welcome. Remember to consult with your doctor or qualified instructor if you’re pregnant, suffer from neck or back pain (or any other physical restrictions), or have respiratory problems. Also, be careful not to push yourself past your limits, as doing so may cause injury.
