PILATES IS A NON-IMPACT WORKOUT. IT WILL NOT STRESS BUT STRENGTHEN YOUR JOINTS.

Pilates is a method of exercise that strengthens the body from within, and was once described as ‘movement flowing out from
a strong centre’. Our daily activities cause us to consistently over work some muscles and under use others.
PILATES ADDRESSES POSTURAL ISSUES BY CORRECTING MUSCLE IMBALANCES. Correcting these musculo-skeletal
imbalances promotes core strength, flexibility and stability therefore generating both strength and stability in our movement.
Your ‘Core’ encompasses the deep muscles and connective tissue of the mid-section so your core muscles include abdominal
muscle, pelvic floor, sides of the trunk, spine and back, buttock, hip and pelvis. Focusing on developing a healthy and functional
core can give relief from stress, reducing pain and the likelihood of injury.

Pilates is an important fitness component and fundamental in supporting and stabilising the spine, restoring the natural curves of the spine and rebalancing the muscles around the joints.
Additionally
BREATHING IS AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF PILATES WITH THE ASSOCIATED BENEFITS OF PROMOTING RELAXATION AND IMPROVING CIRCULATION AND EASE OF MOVEMENT.
It is a method of exercise that truly can benefit everybody, in its own right or as an integrated part of your training.

Many professional sports teams including professional rugby and football teams, athletes and dancers, golfers and tennis professionals integrate Pilates into their training as it can assist in increasing strength, speed, and agility and enhance balance, flexibility and posture as well as decreasing the risk of injury.
Equally the exercises can be modified to address special populations and help in injury rehabilitation with many physiotherapists now advocating Pilates as a functional form of rehabilitation. Strong core muscles can also improve sexual performance, strengthen muscles for, and aid a quicker recovery after childbirth.

        Charlotte Wise has been my Personal Pilates Instructor for
four years. In that time, her tuition and expertise has enabled me to
correct my posture, strengthen my core muscles and free myself
from back pain. In addition, over the last eight months she has
supported me through my treatment for breast cancer and has
helped enormously with my physical recovery from the rigours of
chemotherapy and breast surgery, continually adjusting my
exercise programme according to my needs and capabilities.

Charlotte has a happy, relaxed and friendly manner, which makes
her weekly visits such a pleasure, and yet she always maintains
just the right level of professionalism in her work. I cannot
recommend her highly enough.
