What is Pilates?

Pilates is a method of exercising based around the method founded by Joseph Pilates. His original 32 exercises have been developed, evolved and adapted to suit a much wider group of participants.

When people new to Pilates ask me what Pilates is? I reply as simply as possible with this…Pilates aim is to bring the body into balance. Loosening and releasing muscles that have become too tight, toning and building those muscles that have become too slack. The results of which will be a more effortlessly held upright body / posture and greater overall tone strength and flexibility.

We, homosapiens, have evolved into upright creatures with a musculature system that supports primarily the vertical spine. However, as our body ages, with injuries, lack of regular exercise and a more sedentary working habit our body looks and feels like it is crumbling/collapsing.

"After many years of practising Pilates at a different class which had closed we found it difficult to find a class in our area that was suited to all levels, convenient and most of all enjoyable. From our first class with Sharon we knew it was a class we wanted to commit to attending regularly. We found other Pilates classes that we had tried tedious in the exercises and found they felt a chore to attend.  Sharon's classes have reminded us how much fun Pilates can be, we have found through Sharon we have personally progressed with our Pilates technique and also found a change and improved strength to our bodies. Sharon is a wealth of knowledge and we have learnt a host of new techniques and skills that will improve our core strength, joint mobility and stability for overall good health. Sharon adapts technique for all abilities and levels and provides encouragement and support when needed. We now find ourselves looking forward to our Pilates or Yoga classes each week, and the time flies by in the class! Overall we feel stronger from every class, it is a pleasure to attend and we encourage those of all levels and abilities who are thinking of giving Pilates a try to come along to one of Sharon's classes!"
