About Pilates

Pilates was designed by Joseph Pilates and was originally name Contrology. It is an innovative, refreshing, mind-body exercise system that focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body. 


By emphasizing proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, you will become acutely in tune with your body, allowing you to implement the Pilates principles you learn into your day to day life.




  • Increase your core strength and help alleviate and prevent back pain

  • Improve your joint flexibility and range of movement

  • Reduce your stress levels

  • Improve balance, improve muscular strength, develop flexibility and improve posture. 

  • Feel leaner, stronger and more toned



It’s safe - Pilates has long been recommended as one of the safest forms of exercise by GPs, physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths as a method to keep the spine healthy and injury free.


It’s Gentle and challenging - Pilates is an extremely flexible exercise system.  Modifications to the exercises allow for a range of difficulty raging from beginners to advanced so is therefore suitable for all fitness levels and age groups. 

My Pilates classes are run on a six week block. This allows you to learn the method week to week, building on the essential principles including breath and control.
