What's Pilates?

‘Not only is health a normal condition, but it is our duty to not only to attain it but to maintain it.’  Joseph H Pilates 

Pilates is an exercise system developed by Joseph H. Pilates back in the early part of the 20th century. Over the course of a lifetime Pilates dedicated his time to improve physical and mental health by creating exercises for the whole body.

‘Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.’   Joseph H Pilates 

Pilates strengthens the body from the inside out, increases flexibility, agility and improves overall health including strengthening the body’s core and improving posture. It helps to bring balanced development to the whole body and is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It helps alleviate back pain and teaches you body awareness.  

"For so many of us, Pilates is much more than an exercise method – it is a way of life"   Balanced Body Inc
