I am inviting you to find out more about Pilates and my classes in the Ealing area.
What is Pilates?
Pilates is a very precise technique designed to develop coordination, balance, strength and flexibility as well as body and breath awareness. This intelligent system of body-conditioning exercises helps to align your body, strengthen and lengthen muscles, mobilize joints and thus giving you a leaner and suppler appearance.
Toning your deep core muscles will improve your overall posture helping you to stand tall and keeping your upper body well placed. Isolating muscle groups helps to strengthen weaker areas and re-balance any muscular or postural imbalances. The awareness of your body you develop doing Pilates, will help you to prevent injury and maintain a healthy posture.
Pilates is a gentle, non-aerobic exercise method requiring full concentration and attention. At the same time it has a wonderfully calming and relaxing effect on the mind.
Pilates is suitable for everyone: for those wanting to improve their fitness, getting a stronger back or flatter stomach, for those seeking help to address a specific injury or medical condition and for those seeking to simply stay mobile whilst growing old. Pilates exercises can be safely adjusted and practiced during pregnancy and help with postnatal recovery.
