These sessions help improve back and neck pain often due to excessive repetition of working at a computer, sitting in meetings. for prolonged periods of time, which can create compression in the hip joints.  This can lead to shortened muscles in the back, knees, neck and torso. These group sessions help improve energy and concentration. A typical back strengthening exercise such as Swan Dive is a demonstration of a typical exercise we would do in a corporate Pilates class.

Pilates classes

Pilates is a system of mind-body exercises including breathing, maintaining a neutral spine, developing strong core muscles, flowing movements which aim to improve co-ordination, balance, challenge neuromuscular pathways and improve your kinaesthetic sense by fine tuning your exercises and improving motor skills.

Awareness of addressing  muscular imbalances caused by poor posture and sporting activities you will learn to move more easily with less tension in the body.

Our method focuses on an holistic approach, you develop a sense of body awareness, learn how to activate key postural muscles and achieve stability in the abdominals and lower back.

Each exercise is executed with precision, considering the angle of the spine, pelvis and curves of your spine.  What makes Pilates different is you do not just focus on one muscle, but address the body as a whole.

Our collection of exercises vary from week to week and exercises have carefully been selected to complement each other by incorporating both simple and complex movements.  Group classes include using resistance bands/circles for additional toning.
