getting to the core of it
Pilates is a form of exercise devised over 50 years ago by Joseph Hubertus Pilates.
Although principally physical in nature, it is more than merely an exercise regime. It is a “method” based on a set of very specific principles that focus on the quality and pattern of movements and can be applied in both a rehabilitative and fitness setting.The success of Pilates lies in the application of these principles to either rehabilitate injured muscles, ligaments and/or joints, correct muscle imbalances or as part of a normal exercise program to enhance training and improve reflexes, strength and stamina.
Pilates teaches you a new way of using your body and increases self awareness, making you mindful of the way in which you move in daily activities. Many of our aches and pains are a result of years of bad posture and habits. Pilates addresses the resulting muscle imbalances, pain and dysfunction these postures and habits have caused and facilitates smooth, coordinated and correct movement patterns. Good habits and posture will then be trained and encouraged forever more!
At physiomoves we offer 1:1 (private), 1:2 (semi-private) consultations and group Pilates (1:4) sessions.
