Course Overview

Pilates uses slow and controlled movements to develop strong abdominals, back, butt and deep postural muscles, increase body awareness, and gain flexibility.

Pilates can result in a number of physical and mental health benefits and in addition to improving strength, balance, flexibility and posture it can increase energy levels and enhance mood. Pilates improves core strength in an integrated and holistic way, meaning that no one muscle group is over developed relative to other muscle groups.
