Pilates is a mind body workout designed to strengthen the core muscles and encourage correct body alignment. It will improve posture and reduce stress. It is one of the most functional training methods to help us combat the everyday stresses our bodies are under. By learning and instilling correct movement patterns we restore good postural alignment, becoming stronger and fitter. Pilates is also excellent for toning and strengthening all the muscles of the body.

Pilates is suitable and beneficial for all ages and abilities and is widely recognised to help the recovery of injuries.

When I started practising Pilates I noticed the benefits almost immediately. Growing up with a mother who was a yoga teacher, I have always been aware of the importance of correct posture whether sitting, standing or moving. I was fascinated by how Pilates reinforces the correct patterns of movement and helps to counteract the negative effects modern life has on our bodies. We spend so much time hunched over desks, mobile phones, laptops, etc that working on postural alignment and inner strength is more important than ever before to avoid more serious problems both now and in later life.

I believe in taking a holistic approach to healthy living. My classes will teach you how to incorporate the principles of Pilates into your daily lives promoting a strong and healthy body to protect you against the strains of our modern lives. It’s about “LIVING PILATES”!
