Pilates, as we know it today is an exercise form created by Joseph Pilates (1880 - 1967). 

Using movements combining gymnastics, yoga, skiing, fencing and dance he developed a unique technique that can be modified for all ages and abilities to provide a safe and challenging workout.

Through a carefully crafted set of exercises, pilates aims to change the way we use our bodies, restoring good posture, improving flexibility and muscle tone, relieving back pain and trimming waistlines. pilates strengthens the core and leads to an ‘inner strength’ allowing the body to work in a more organised, efficient manner.
