The Pilates Method

The Pilates Method or simply Pilates, pronounced "Pih-lah-tees" is a system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates.
Joseph Pilates called his method Contrology, because he believed his method uses the mind to control the muscles.

Pilates is a body-conditioning method that works in a different way to other fitness techniques. Targeting the deep postural muscles, it works by building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body & bringing it into correct postural alignment. It helps to reshape your body, which will become longer, leaner & more toned; achieving the perfect balance between strength & flexibility.

Ideal for athletes looking to enhance their performance & avoid injury; it is equally suitable for first time exercisers. Its precise, controlled approach means that it gives longer term results & it is especially recommended by medical specialists for those with back problems.

Pilates offers both mental & physical training, literally teaching you to be in control of your body. By improving body awareness & focus, tension is released from the body & correct postural alignment is taught. Body Eclipse Pilates Evesham WR11

Pilates encourages you to breathe more efficiently by breathing laterally into the lower ribcage. The creation of a girdle of strength is one of the primary aims & is achieved by strengthening the deep postural muscles that stabilise the torso.
By correcting imbalances, sound muscle recruitment patterns are encouraged
& the body is realigned.

Precise, controlled, flowing movements mean that the muscle & ligament damage, sometimes associated with other fitness regimes, is avoided. Pilates plays a key role in many injury rehabilitation programmes in dance, sport & general practice.

In summary Pilates is the ultimate mind-body workout, a fitness phenomenon !

"My method develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind & elevates the spirit"
