Clinical Pilates

Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates and is an exercise approach to core stability and postural alignment.

Pilates is a well recognised exercise method and is becoming increasingly popular worldwide as it encourages conscious control of movement and good postural habits.

It is highly recommended that clients have one-on-one clinical pilates before they join any pilates group class. This will ensure that they have learnt the correct exercise techniques and will be able to benefit from pilates.
