Benefits of Pilates

“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness” Joseph Pilates

Pilates exercises strengthen the muscles that support and stabilise the core of your body. Learning more about your posture and practising neutral Pilates positions often will also help to relieve the discomfort of any general back pain. Pilates can lead to many benefits, including:

  • Improved posture
  • Fewer incidences of back pain
  • Improved Stabilisation of the spine
  • Greater strength and muscle tone
  • Improved flexibility
  • Increased joint mobility 
  • Lower stress level
  • Improved circulation
  • Safe rehabilitation of joint and spinal injuries
  • More efficient respiratory and circulatory systems

Different people want different things from their Pilates programme. Whether these goals involve relieving back pain and stiffness through strength building, or totally redefining your body shape, one of the first steps is positive thinking and a commitment to Pilates as a regular form of exercise.

The speed of your progression will depend on several factors including your physical condition at the start of the programme, and how often and for how long you practise. To ensure safe, healthy progress – and to sustain your commitment and enjoyment – we encourage you to do the classes at the pace that feels right for you.

Remember that as well as enabling such changes and improvements in the short term, Pilates is also about enjoying long-term wellbeing and a permanently enhanced level of physical health.
