Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates, a pioneer who had a passion for the way the body moved and an eye for correcting its function or dysfunction. He wrote a great book called ‘Return to Life through Contrology’ and that is exactly what Pilates is about, learning to control your own body one muscle at a time and then as a whole. In Pilates we teach you to isolate and then activate.
Pilates is a programme to build core strength and activate these muscles to protect the spine and get them to work prior to gross movement. If you have back or joint pain, find a qualified trainer to get a one to one with and start taking control today.
