ABOUT PILATES

The “Pilates Method” is a set of principles, flowing movements and corrective exercises designed to improve control of the trunk muscles leading to good core stability and strength. This allows the limb muscles to work more effectively and efficiently. It also improves flexibility, balance and coordination, creating good posture.

Pilates will noticeably improve posture by stretching very tight, tense muscles and strengthening weak, underdeveloped muscles. This will help alleviate pain or discomfort in the lower back, hips, neck and shoulders. Pilates will literally change the way you move.

Pilates exercises are ideal for everyone from late teens, all through adult life into extreme old age and the super fit. All levels of fitness are catered for at Pilates Naturally Studio.
