Pilates – how can it help?
Pilates can help adults of all ages and fitness levels to improve their health and wellbeing.
Health Benefits of Pilates
Pilates exercises are slow and controlled and help to build core strength and stability, improving balance and reducing the risks of falls as we age. We offer modern Pilates classes which take your body through the full range of movement from standing to lying on a mat to help improve movement in daily activities.
Over time, by attending regular Pilates sessions your joints can feel more flexible and your body more mobile. As we age our balance and coordination deteriorates and Pilates exercises can help us to develop natural balanced alignment. You’ll build your strength and stamina and the Pilates bone loading exercises can help to reduce your risk of osteoporosis. As Pilates exercises are combined with your breathing, sleep patterns can improve and you can feel more relaxed.
