Pilates is a subtle form of exercise which helps to prevent back and postural problems. Although it focuses mainly on the muscles around the pelvis and abdomen, all areas of the body are given attention. One of the many benefits is that the exercises produce strength without increasing muscle bulk or compromising the flexibility.
“ The Pilates system works the body as a whole and aims to co-ordinate the upper and lower muscle groups with the center of the body. It can have a dramatic effect on strength, flexibility, posture and co ordination”.
