PILATES

Pilates is a unique blend of calisthenics, yoga and ballet, originally designed to help people recover from injuries. Because of this, many of the exercises are performed in sitting or reclining positions, and most are low-impact and partially weight bearing, so pilates is suitable for everyone whatever their age or level of fitness.

We will ensure that your own personal programme is safe and correct for you, and that the level of intensity is slowly increased as you progress so that you always obtain the maximum benefits. And those benefits are considerable!

Pilates will put you back in tune with your body as you focus on proper breathing and maintaining your correct spinal and pelvic alignment. You’ll develop a strong ‘core’, or centre of the body, with flat abdominals and a strong back. You’ll enjoy balanced strength and flexibility, with long, lean, toned muscles, better circulation and improved joint mobility.

Pilates conditions the whole body, so no muscle group will be over- or under-trained, making it ideal for injury recovery and sports performance. ​

Finally, the proper breathing method that Pilates teaches is known to help reduce stress levels and fatigue. Pilates truly is a win-win-win.

‘I have the greatest confidence in Lucie. She has been like a guardian angel in my life over about 20 years to keep me moving with pilates cleverly adapted to suit my growing immobility. Also soothing my aches and pains with massage; not to mention friendship and advice
