Core strength, Flexibility and Posture
Pilates is a series of exercises designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1930’s in New York City to improve your posture, flexibility, balance and overall strength. We truly believe Pilates is the key to long-term improvement and prevention of injury. It has the added bonus of enhanced body confidence too so why not give it a try.
One to One Pilates in Edinburgh
One to one Pilates sessions are an excellent way of tailoring Pilates to your individual needs, focusing on specific exercises to benefit you, and progressing at your pace. We also recommend one to one Pilates for pre-natal and post-natal clients, as well as those recovering from injury.
Small group classes in Edinburgh
Group Pilates classes are fun and effective. With a maximum of 8 people in each class, you’ll have the attention and focus you deserve. Before starting classes, we’ll ask you to join our Pre-Pilates Class. This is a one-off, introductory class where we will teach you the basics and ensure you start group classes with confidence.
Pilates is an excellent and effective method of rehabilitation following injuries such as back pain from a disc herniation, after surgery or to address postural issues. Often injuries develop in our body as a result of long-term muscle imbalance, creating additional strain to joints and muscles. Above all Pilates helps to realign and create balance in the body, restoring optimal movement and function, and in turn, relieving pain and preventing further injury.
Better Posture & Core Control
Pilates and posture go hand in hand. We often hear people saying they feel taller after a session! Pilates exercises work on strengthening the deep stabilising muscles which support your spine and joints. As a result of activating these deeper core muscles, your body will function more easily, with less effort, and importantly reducing the risk of injury.
Incorporating Pilates into your training programme will improve flexibility and body control. Pilates exercises help to develop and strengthen the deep stabilising muscles in your body, that are often neglected. By strengthening muscles around your back and pelvis, as well as upper back and shoulders you create balance within the body. Optimal balance and alignment allows you to generate more power and will reduce the risk of injury when performing repetitive movements.
Health & Wellbeing
As well as the physical effect Pilates has on our body, this form of exercise incorporates the mind. Pilates has many useful benefits because it brings awareness to your breathing, and helps to boost blood flow in your body. This helps to improve your focus, promote relaxation and relieve stress.
