Pilates

“It is the mind itself which shapes the body” – Joseph Pilates

The Pilates technique was named after its creator, Joseph Pilates – a body builder, gymnast, boxer, diver, skier, wrestler and self-defence trainer!

“The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body, and not at its mercy” – Joseph Pilates

Pilates is a physical fitness system, and its method seeks to develop controlled movement from a strong core, to guide and train your body. It is an active method of balancing and strengthening, allowing you to focus on core stabilisation and correct postural alignment. It creates an internal physical transformation and an integration of the mind and body.

Strong to the core offers private 1:1 sessions. The benefits of private 1:1 sessions is that they are specific to you.

All sessions are 1 hour in duration and your initial assessment includes a postural analysis.
