Pilates FAQs


What is Pilates?

Pilates is a body conditioning technique that will stretch, strengthen and balance the body. Pilates targets deep postural muscles within the body through a series of exercises aimed at building core strength and flexibility. Excellent for improving posture and alignment, pilates also teaches coordination, concentration and control.

Pilates is either done on a mat or with apparatus in a specialised studio.
