Pilates for the mind an body

Pilates

Yes it’s good for you…but why might you join one of my warm, friendly Pilates classes?

The strengthening core-work that supports your spine and postural alignment; has a super positive affect on emotional and mental resilience and vitality, therefore you will notice a conditioning balance of mind, body and breath, that keeps you coming back for more of that wonderful ‘feel good’ factor: subtly relaxed and yet energised!

All classes are beginner and improver levels.  There’s a flowing and yet individual pace to the class and I pay attention to your needs with detailed instruction.

Pilates exercise is based on a set of 6 conditioning principles of health, encompassing wholeness. 

The 6 Pilates Principles:

  1. Breath: Deep lateral breathing is used to expand the energy and help maintain Ph levels in the body.
  2. Control: Each exercise is done with muscular control. It is all a conscious, deliberate movement that the mind is controlling supported by the centring.
  3. Concentration: Full attention to each exercise and do it with full commitment . The mind is aware of the whole body and the breathe moving as one.
  4. Centring: This is away of resting the attention energetically, between lower ribs and pubic bone, as though all movements are generated from this central area.
  5. Precision: Movements are performed from the awareness of an aligned posture, careful attention to move correctly.
  6. Flow: There is a rhythm present, as the breathe and the body move together creating an energetic and physical flow.

Some of the many benefits of Pilates include:

Pilates specifically targets the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles to create a deep sense of reassurance, strength and stability. Core muscle exercise and stretches create a longer, leaner figure. The body and mind is co-ordinated for better movement and focus. Here are a few more:

  • Feel good factor
  • Boosted immune system
  • Greater back and abdominal strength
  • Increased bone density
  • Trimmer waistline
  • Less general aches & pain
  • Better posture & flexibility
  • improved respiratory system
  • improved sports performance
