Pilates is a complete exercise method developed by its founder Joseph Pilates over the course of a lifetime dedicated to improving physical and mental health. Pilates focuses on building your body's core strength and improving your posture through a series of low repetition low impact stretching and conditioning exercises. By core strength, we are talking about your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles. Through pilates, you will be able to develop these muscles without adding bulk, increasing your flexibility and agility and at the same time toning your stomach and thigh muscles. Pilates goes far beyond your core muscles however and not only provides a complete body workout (you will be working muscles you didn't even know you had!), but also helps you develop an awareness of how your body works, helping your mind and body to work in harmony.

As an Osteopath I highly recommend postural exercise to help maintain good postural health and reduce the chance of injury. I work in association with an excellent local pilates teacher, Jane Percival who combines a warm friendly atmosphere with professional instruction. All levels and abilities are welcome, classes specialising on postural and back problems, one to one / small classes available.
