Share the benefits of Pilates with the whole family, from toddlers to teens to grandparents.
Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and General Practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the most effective forms of exercise today. Regardless of age, ability or fitness level, Pilates is beneficial for everyone.
Pilates conditions the whole body - no muscle group is over trained or under trained. The entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned. Muscles are lengthened and strengthened, overall fitness is improved, posture is aligned and dysfunctional movement patterns are retrained - the body is restored to optimum physical function.
