Pilates ; That it all started with one man!
Pilates is developed in the early 20th century by German Joseph Hubertus Pilates
( 1883 - 1967 )
His father was a gymnast and his mother a naturopath.
Inspiration for his method came to him during World War One, while he was being held in an internment camp on the Isle of Man.

The Pilates Method is founded on core strength. Pilates mat and equipment exercises strengthen not just the outer muscles of the center of the body but also the deep inner stabilizing muscles of the pelvis, abdomen, and back—the core muscles.
Core strength supports the back and neck, giving us healthy posture and freeing the joints to allow a natural flexibility of the limbs. .

I love teaching Pilates , I try to find out as much information as possible regarding my clients and their goals. I like to make positive changes for their posture and general fitness regime.
If some have been attending from the very beginning and others have recently joined then I need to offer various levels and alternative exercises even in my beginners class to suit different abilities.
It’s my responsibility to motivate members, I meet new people and I have some great characters in my classes who are a pleasure to teach.
I am responsible for helping people achieve optimal posture, correct muscle imbalances, improve strength, mobility and flexibility and improve overall health and well-being.
WHETHER YOU ARE MALE OR FEMALE
LONG HOURS SPEND SLUMPED AT A DESK OR DRIVING AND SITTING TOO MUCH ON THE SOFA CAN CAUSE BAD POSTURAL HABITS!
Men tend to be weak in the small muscle groups like the deep abdominals, inner thigh/groin, and hip stabilizers.
A huge component of Pilates is about developing muscle — both in the large and small muscle groups -- particularly those that strengthen the core and stabilize the joints.
The result is more awareness and better functional mechanics of the pelvis, shoulder, hip, elbow, knee, ankle, wrist, etc.
Having all of these areas function at maximum, makes it easier to build strong pecs, bulging biceps, and legs.
PILATES CAN TEACH YOU BETTER AND SAFE WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR STRENGTH, POSTURE AND HEALTH.
