Pilates is based on creating good postural alignment for strength, stability and balance.

Pilates practiced correctly is highly effective in toning muscles without creating bulk or stressing the joints.

Regular practice of Pilates will help you to gain a better understanding of your postural strengths and weaknesses; engaging the smaller stabilising muscles and bringing awareness to the deeper more internal muscles helping to balance the body.
