Pilates

"Pilates is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work" - Joseph Pilates.

Pilates teachers

The regular use of Pilates has been found to be successful in preventing recurrent back pain episodes. Recent research from the Physiotherapy Department at Queensland University by Richardson and Jull, has demonstrated that by increasing the co-ordination and strength in the deep abdominal muscles, i.e. transverse abdominals, that the lumbar spine is stabilised and protected.

Pilates works on strengthening the stabilising muscles, which lie close to and support the spine. Pilates works by re-balancing the body, altering the way in which you recruit muscles to produce movements. It changes the way you use your body, the way you move - restoring natural, normal movement.

Pilates exercises are gentle and performed slowly with good postural alignment at all times, These controlled movements are therefore unlikely to lead to re-injury. Regular Pilates practice typically leads to a stronger, leaner body while developing body awareness and having an overall de-stressing effect on most people.

"I was recommended to take up Pilates following a 6 week absence from work due to back problems. Since practising regularly my posture has improved, my backache has reduced immensely and my abdominal area is stronger and more toned!"
Gill, Student Manager
