Pilates can assist in keeping your whole body healthy: it strengthens your body, improves posture, creates stability, flexibility, coordination and concentration. Pilates can help to decrease stress, boost your confidence, increase your energy and help you to breathe correctly. It improves body wellness, body awareness, relieves aches and pains, improves sporting performance, prevents injury and speeds up recovery. There are so many benefits to practising Pilates.
To create a fun, as well as a challenging dynamic to Mat based classes, props are regularly used:
small stability balls, therabands, magic circles, rollers, swiss balls, hand weights ...
This includes various pieces of equipment which you will gently be introduced to, such as:
Trapeze Table, Chair, Ladder Barrel, Arc, Reformer along with other props, some noted above.
Studio can be worked in a small group - working on your own programme - or in a circuit set up,

Equipment at Home
Many people have started to buy their own props and equipment to use at home. If you would like guidance on how to use your props or equipment safely and effectively, may I recommend a few sessions with me from time to time. It will benefit you greatly.
Continuing your Rehab
Once your physio or other practitioner has signed you off to start exercising, why not start or continue with Pilates. It will ensure you are doing current exercises correctly and introduce you to other exercises that will assist in your rehabilitation.
