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.

A few years ago I had a very severe back injury which resulted in me being off work for 6 weeks. I had previously had minor back problems. Rather than continue in a cycle of physio, pain management, feeling well, then injury again, I decided to do something about it! So when Sharon put a leaflet through my door, I felt this was my opportunity. The group in Well Lane were very welcoming to me and I didn’t feel at all awkward not doing some of the exercises, as I was very scared of injuring myself again. Two years on I now feel better equipped to manage my condition. Sharon has taught me about the types of muscles i use for different movements, therefore making me more aware of the importance of correct posture. Also, if for example, I’m working in the garden, I always complete a set of stretches before and after thus avoiding any problems. If you’ll excuse the pun, Sharon has equipped me with the tools I need, to ensure I can enjoy activities without being in constant fear of injuring myself. Lastly and most importantly, through this group I’ve made a whole new group of friends and I value this immensely. Thank you Sharon.
