Pilates for All
The Beginners Pilates course will teach you the basic principles of the Pilates technique:
posture, and muscle isolation, through a series of mat exercise sequences
that progress as you develop strength, co-ordination and flexibility. Practising and mastering
the Pilates technique can transform your body shape, posture and general well-being. It can
also significantly reduce or eliminate back, shoulder and neck pain. Pilates will improve your
core' stability by teaching you how to switch on deep postural muscles that support and
stabilise the spine, this takes time and concentration to develop. Pilates will make changes to
your posture that will help you stand taller as you learn how to align your spine and the
muscles that support it, and improve your flexibility and core stability
