Pilates is a unique exercise system of stretching and strengthening muscles, developed over a hundred years ago by Joseph Pilates.

Clinical Pilates was developed by physiotherapists with expertise in anatomy, injury prevention and rehabilitation. It is a series of comprehensive exercises incorporating stabilisation training, addressing deep stability muscles within the body, helping to improve posture, strength, flexibility, toning, balance and control.

Our experienced staff are dedicated to providing you with a unique programme tailored to your specific needs and goals.

The exercises provide a logical progression from static stabilisation such as basic core strength onto more advanced and dynamic movement patterns.
