Modern Pilates

Modern Pilates

Modern Pilates brings you a contemporary approach to the traditional exercise system pioneered by German born Joseph Pilates (1880 - 1967). Modern Pilates classes have a unique focus on how our occupations, hobbies and activities affect our posture. Posture is not just being told to sit up straight at the dinner table!

Poor posture is often the result of muscle imbalances caused by excessive repetition of movement. i.e. sitting hunched at a desk for long hours during the day, repetitive heavy lifting, not to mention carrying a toddler on one hip whilst juggling loading the weekly shop into the car! All of these things can cause muscle imbalance and changes to posture. One thing we know for sure is that muscle imbalance causes pain.

Modern Pilates exercises target improvements in pain and posture from the very first session. All exercises are slow and controlled, you do not have to be fit and clients with back pain or injury and neck and shoulder pain are our speciality.
