Wellcome to Pilates With Me

PILATES!That it all started with one man!


Pilates is developed in the early 20th century by  German Joseph Hubertus Pilates  ( 1883 - 1967 )  

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.


Whether you are female or male Pilates has a lot to offer people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness ranging from beginners to athletes.

Pilates not simply strengthen our core on the floor, Integrate core strength into full body movement..

Pilates is classed as a low impact exercise in slow or faster phase depends on the level but always in controlled movements.


Pilates make you taller, stretches muscles, corrects posture problems by improving alignment and keeping your spine healthy , this allows you to reverse any damage or natural shrinkage.

As we grow older, maintaining an active life style becomes more important than ever, regular exercise can even reverse the symptoms of ageing and help you. 


***Before starting any exercise program, it's advisable to seek advice from GP or a health professional if you have any health concerns or serious injuries.***


" IF YOU DO PILATES THEN YOU CAN DO ANYTHING "

The Core / Abs workout

Core strength supports the back and neck, giving us healthy posture and freeing the joints to allow a natural flexibility of the limbs.

   

Standing Pilates

 ...And you wonder why your abdomen is sticking out! right ? Muscles become lax when you slump, so other muscles try to take over the slack of the internal support muscles. When you sit for long periods, your hips and shoulders become stiff.

The Hips, Legs , Torso

  Pilates exercises strengthen not just the outer muscles of the centre of the body but also the deep inner stabilising muscles of the pelvis,abdomen, and back.

MY PASSION

I love teaching Pilates ,

I feel that responsibility for helping each client  and informed on their well-being journey.

Also I meet new people and I have some great characters in my classes who are a pleasure to teach. 


PILATES FOR MEN

image257

Whether you are Male or Female ,long hours spend slumped at a desk or driving and sitting for long time of period can cause bad postural habit!


Pilates Invented by a man but most men are thinking Pilates is easy until they try for a proper Pilates session.

Men tend to be weak in the small muscle groups like the deep abdominal, inner thigh/groin, and hip stabilisers even if you have six pack that doesn't mean your deepest muscles are strong.


A huge component of Pilates is about developing muscle — both in the large and small muscle groups -- particularly those that strengthen the core and stabilise the joints. 

The result is more awareness and better functional mechanics of the pelvis, shoulder, hip, elbow, knee, ankle, wrist,.  

Having all of these areas function at maximum, makes it easier to build strong pecs, bulging biceps, and  legs with  injury free.

PILATES FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

According The National Osteoporosis Society:


Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones lose their strength and more likely to break.

The  UK are estimated to have osteoporosis, a condition that causes around 500,000 broken bones every year - that's one every minute!

Over 50 years old everyone is at risk for getting osteoporosis but that could also effect younger age groups as well.

The way we live our life can play an importrant part in determining the amount of bone we invest in our bone bank during our youth.

Although our genes play a key role in deciding the potential size and strength.


You can prevent Osteoporosis by taking plenty of weight-bearing exercises like Pilates and eating a well balanced calcium rich diet.

Exercise is important in building strong bones and strengthening your muscles and reducing your risk of a fragility fracture.


Pilates exercises can help people with weakened bones by:

-Increasing bone density when body parts move against the force of gravity.

-Increasing strength and muscle mass which in turn help to support muscles.

-Improving balance which can help prevent falls.

-Improving range of motion and posture which can help keep the bones in alignment.


I'm qualified to teach Pilates for Osteoporosis.
