What is Pilates?History

Pilates was named after its founder Joseph Pilates and it is a unique form of exercise to restore physical fitness. Using the art of contrology, the musculo-skeletal system is evenly balanced using the conscious control of all muscular movements in the body.

Eastern and Western principles are utilised by Pilates (Yoga, martial arts, gymnastics, dance) to balance the whole body...the large superficial muscles with the small deep stabilising core muscles of the spine.

Our trunk or core is the foundation from which all forms of physical activity begins.


These small deep layer muscles are often overlooked with some forms of exercise This has allowed them to become weaker as the large superficial muscles become even stronger creating muscular imbalance.

There is clear purpose behind each exercise and breathing pattern. Everything in this method is done with precision, focus and concentration.

When one makes conscious choices the mind is very present. This mind-body connection is very powerful in muscle re-education to gain complete control over the subconscious activities

    Pilates and Low Back Pain

    Dull or severe lower back pain is a common complaint. The Pilates method is consistent with the latest research findings into the management of low back pain. Using the principles of contrology pilates exercises aim to first increase the endurance of the deep stabilising muscles of the spine, then retrain them to engage prior to initiation of spinal movement thus protecting the movement.
    Under appropriate supervision, learning this functional control of the spine will help to reduce and prevent lower back pain.


    Exercise is an important component in the management of hack pain. With the development of tvpicalli poor postural habits, we lose the stability and support necessarifor a healthy spine. Carefully administered exerci,ces that focus on increasing the strength and endurance of the muscles that siahilise the trunk and spine will rein fr)rce correct o.stural habits. P1/ales is an effective method of strengthening our core which enables us to sit, stand, walk and work wit/i greater com.thrt and confidence."
