Tone and Sculpt Your Whole Body
Pilates is an effective exercise program for everyone. It realigns the body and retrains the back, stomach and pelvic floor muscles to work in harmony to create a strong core. All this improves posture, lengthening and toning muscles throughout the body, creating a fabulous silhouette in men and women. Pilates is also recommended by many doctors physical therapists and physiotherapists to rehabilitate and strengthen the back and its supporting muscles.
Which class is suitable for me?
- Level 1 – Suitable if you are a complete beginner, have attended a beginners workshop or around 5 hours of classes. You are learning the pilates principles and fundamentals
- Level 2 – Depends on the individual, but generally 10 hours plus of classes, having grasped the fundamentals is able to maintain the principles whilst adding in more resistance
- Level 3 – A regular class attendee who is confident doing a larger repertoire of exercises and working with more challenging options.
- Level 4 – Intermediate level. Someone who is fairly advanced in their practice which has developed over a long period of time with regular classes. A greater range of flexibility through the body and upper body strength is required at this level (and a good sense of humour!)
- Level 5 – Intermediate, working towards advanced (we are all working towards this!)
