Pilates aims to balance the body, mind, and spirit and was originally developed as an exercise programme for injured dancers and soldiers by Joseph H Pilates back in the early 1900s. Pilates improves general fitness by strengthening the whole body with an emphasis on your posture, balance, and flexibility.  

Pilates exercises can be modified to provide either gentle strength training or a challenging workout, making it suitable for beginners as well as those who already exercise regularly. 

If you're a beginner you can start with simpler exercises, progressing onto more advanced moves and variations as you gain more confidence. It is also offers excellent complementary training for athletes, dancers and other sports professionals who have had some kind of injury due to its low-impact nature. 


As Pilates focuses on core strength, posture, and flexibility the health benefits can include: 

Good Posture

Pilates can teach and support you to gain and maintain good posture. The exercises require that your body is always in alignment. This is especially beneficial if you suffer from lower back pain.

Muscle Tone

The exercises involve the use of muscles that you may not use on a daily basis. After the initial soreness, if you do Pilates regularly you'll find that your muscles will be much more toned and getting stronger too. This is especially good for older people and those who are normally quite sedate in their daily life as muscle tone is usually lost with age and inactivity.


As we age, we tend to lose the flexibility we had when we were young. Pilates can help restore your flexibility, gently at first of course. After a while though, you’ll be amazed at how much more flexible your body has become. This is especially important for avoiding injuries from falls and other workout and exercise routines.


Through the mind-body connection which is taught in Pilates you will become much more aware of how your body moves and performs. Therefore, Pilates not only improves your physical balance through correct posture but aims to also restore your mind-body balance.

Reduces Stress 

When doing the exercises, you'll be totally engrossed and won't be able to think about all those responsibilities that weigh you down on a day-to-day basis. You'll be more focused on your breathing and on the moves that you are making with your body. This is an excellent way to relieve stress. It’s also much slower than other exercise classes, so a great way to unwind from a busy day while still working out.

Gives you a general sense of wellbeing 

Because Pilates focuses on providing balance between your mind and body it gives you an overall sense of wellbeing.
