Pilates is a training method that focuses on strengthening the body's core, improving flexibility, and increasing body control. Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s, this form of exercise emphasizes the quality of movements rather than quantity. Through controlled and mindful movements, Pilates helps to balance the body's muscles, improve posture, and reduce stress.

Pilates exercises are performed on a mat or with special equipment, targeting deep muscle groups. The training combines strength training, stretching, and breath control, making it suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner, Pilates can be adapted to meet your specific needs and goals.

The benefits of Pilates include increased core strength, improved flexibility, better balance and coordination, and a reduced risk of injury.

Types of pilates

  • Matwork Pilates: This is the most accessible form of Pilates, which can be performed with just an exercise mat and sometimes small accessories like balls, rings, or bands.

  • Reformer Pilates: This form uses a special machine called a reformer, which provides resistance through springs and pulleys to challenge and support the body through various exercises. Pilates Reformer offers comprehensive and adaptable training that can help improve strength, flexibility, and body control.

  • Clinical Pilates: Often used for rehabilitation purposes, this type of Pilates is tailored by physiotherapists to help patients recover from injuries and improve body function.
