What is Pilates

„In ten sessions you will feel the difference, In twenty you will see the difference and in thirty you will have a whole new body“ Joseph Pilates

Pilates is a carefully designed training method, which restores the balance between the deep stabilizing muscles and the more global mobilisers in the body. By integrating concentration, centring, control, breathing, precision and fluid motion into every exercise, each movement becomes a consciously performed action.

Pilates is useful for:

  • The balance between strength and flexibility
  • The development of long, lean and strong muscles
  • The stabilisation of the spine
  • To support the recovery after an acute injury of the back, hips and legs
  • Postural problems
  • To provide a balanced and effective core work-out for athletes and dancers
  • Professionals with a mostly sedentary work life
  • Pre-and post-natal recovery
  • As a gentle, but effective training method for the elderly
  • Restoring the balance of body, mind and spirit

“Pilates develops the whole body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit“ Joseph Pilates
