Core Principles of Pilates

Pilates will help you because it is a thinking man’s exercise programme, or to be more exact, it is a thoughtful exercise programme. The exercises relax your mind and body, focusing them on precise movements, helping you to achieve a stronger, leaner frame.

Focus, relaxation, breathing, alignment—these are some of the core principles of this exercise method that will improve your body awareness and transform your life.

Our Method

At our studio, we teach you to align your body before each exercise, a critical aspect of Pilates which brings your joints and surrounding tissue into their natural “neutral” position before the start of an exercise. There is a natural, relaxed flow to the movements and a constant sense of lengthening away from your centre or core, which gives you longer, leaner limbs. All this will “re-educate” your body to move correctly and more efficiently and the joints to remain healthy, which will in turn eliminate and prevent stresses and strains of our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.
