The pilates method was developed in the early 1900s by German-born Joseph Pilates, son of a gymnast and naturopath.

His technique unites body and mind to improve posture, strength, flexibility and mobility, as well as overall health, vitality and sense of wellbeing.

Pilates can benefit anyone and everyone, no matter what age, fitness or physical ability.




Here are some of the things that pilates can help to do:

  • Increase flexibility and strength
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Rehabilitate after injury, surgery and illness
  • Correct posture and body alignment
  • Reduce tension and stress
  • Complement training for athletes
  • Enhance pre and post natal care

We work with people who are completely new to exercise or recovering from injury, plus sporty types wanting to improve their performance…and lots of people in between.
