The darling of New York’s ballet dancers, Joseph Pilates had no idea that he was starting a movement movement when he devised exercise and fitness routines for them. He also trained the police force and the Army and, from having been a sickly child, became so fit that he posed as a model for anatomical charts. We hold unswervingly to the original concepts of this movement genius – enhanced by contemporary equipment and thoughtful innovation.
Everything gets better when movement gets better. Picking up your child. Reaching for a dream. Running for the bus. Breathing. Balancing. Flowing. Realigning. Redefining. Simply being. Pilates is a fantastic complement to your favourite sport or training, as the increased core strength, efficiency and range of movement contributes to both power and endurance, as well as preventing injury.
