Contemporary Pilates is a beautiful blend of Pilates meets scientific training. The intention of these classes is to rebalance the harmony of the muscles in your body, release tightness, aches and migraines with purposeful movement of the body. A nice complement to the high intensity classes, it is designed to condition your core system that provides the much needed support for your spine during your daily activities.
Pilates is the deeper art of exercise. Introduced as a form of exercise that required physical and mental attributes, this concept connected the body and mind. The creator of this art Joseph Pilates established a reputation by rehabilitating dancers from injury back to performing on stage.
The Pilates Method uses controlled resistance exercises that are designed to:
- Stretch, release and strengthen muscles
- Create length through targeted muscles
- Improve and increase core stabilisation
- Increase core strength
- Restores postural alignment
- Develop strength without size
- Improve breathing technique
- Relieves stress and enhances energy
- Increased body awareness
- Improves circulation
Pilates is an ever-growing training methodology that is becoming more and more popular with the ‘thinker’ who exercises. It is a slower, safer and more sensible approach to exercise prescription than the traditional feel-the-burn, high-impact type exercise classes. Pilates allows for a diverse range of participants with varying fitness levels because it focuses on the use of one area that is often neglected during movement execution, the core system.
The principles of Pilates can be incorporated into every aspect of daily life including lifting anything from books to shopping bags, moving, elite sport and athletics, dance, playing wind instruments, singing and much more.
