Pilates-exercise

Pilates classes with Amy are aimed at giving you the time to breathe, stretch and strengthen in a fun, relaxed and encouraging environment.

Remember, it is progression not perfection that is important!

Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates.

It doesn't matter if you are young or old, fit or out of shape, flexible or not, Pilates is one of a handful of exercises which can benefit everyone.

If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, low back, and hips, is often called the "powerhouse" and is thought to be the key to a person's stability.  Pilates' exercises can be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to more advanced, and in terms of your specific goals and/or limitations

It is important not to eat for about 2 hours prior to a Pilates Class and to wear loose comfortable clothing (e.g. Sweat shirts and jogging trousers). Please bring a mat to lie on.

Classes are held on Wednesdays. If you are interested in attending the classes, which will last for 1 hour, please speak to the Centre Manager as space is limited.
