Seated Pilates- A Gentler Approach
In Seated Pilates we focus on the six principles of Pilates: concentration, control, centre, flow,
precision and breathing. We will exercise the whole body which will aim to improve posture,
strength, co-ordination and balance whilst working on joint flexibility and mobility. Through breathing
techniques, we will support good circulation and encourage concentration and focus.

Although the majority of exercises are performed from a chair, there will be an option to perform standing exercises to improve standing strength and balance.

The overall aim is to help you work towards a greater level of physical movement without pain, and therefore you will work within your own range and take an option/modification suitable to your own particular needs.
