Pilates is a system of exercise that is completely suitable for anyone. It was originally designed by Joseph Pilates to help soldiers recover from wartime injuries. He later adapted his exercise system to help dancers prevent injury. No matter your age, sex, level of fitness or special circumstances pilates can be used to help you get back to the true you.
Here at Pilates With Purpose we place emphasis on postural alignment, core conditioning and breathing. It is extremely important to us that we make pilates as safe and beneficial for you as possible so we spend time assessing you and developing the right program for you. We work within your body’s limits to focus on and safely achieve functional mobility and stability.
There are many different pieces of equipment that can be used for pilates, but one of the huge benefits of choosing Pilates With Purpose is the fact that we achieve results without the use of much equipment at all. You don’t even need special shoes! This is why it is so simple for us to train you in your own home. You only need enough space to lie down and stretch out.
Our skilled and caring instructors look forward to helping you use pilates to get back to the true you.
