What is Pilates?

Originally developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s and adapted by physiotherapists for rehabilitation after injury, Pilates redresses the imbalance of strength and mobility, using a specific regime of mat based exercises in various different body positions.

For many people experiencing long-term low back, neck and pelvic pain, the problem arises from a weakness of the central core muscles, leading to instability. Pilates is based on the principles that movement must begin from the central core of stability particularly in the lower back and pelvic region.
