Pilates is a conditioning exercise programme that targets the deep core muscles to improve core stability and posture.
During Pilates classes you engage your core at a low level and maintain body alignment while performing Pilates exercises.
Classes are aimed at training the body in healthy movement patterns, correcting muscular imbalances and strengthening the core, this results in the rehabilitation of current injuries and prevention of future injuries.
