Pilates is a low impact, relaxing, mat-based exercise programme designed to help improve core strength, posture and balance. All of the exercises can be done at the individual’s own pace, incorporating breathing techniques to help control the movements.
Pilates can help develop long, lean muscle and promote a healthy, strong, flexible spine. Other benefits of Pilates include improved posture, better muscle tone and coordination. The exercises help to relieve stress and tension and promote a feeling of well-being.
Osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors and general practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today.
Weekly classes are held in Denmead, Emsworth and Waterlooville in Hampshire, UK. Visit the pilates classes page to find out more! Alison also teaches a weekly Pilates class at Horizon Havant Leisure Centre on a Thursday at 09.30 am.
