Pilates Classes At Your Offices UK-wide
The Pilates classes will consist of the more common floor based Pilates system.
Pilates offers a unique way to develop your suppleness whilst restoring muscular balance and improving your posture. It is a gentle but focused exercise programme, which utilises a series of approximately 500 designed movements. The primary focus in Pilates is on the abdomen, lower back, and buttocks, which comprise the core (`power centre`) of the body, and the rewards are plentiful:
Emphasis is on body awareness, controlling body alignment, and correct breathing through concentration to promote efficient movement. The result is a strong flexible body, with muscles that are lengthened and toned. Through the process of regular Pilates sessions the body`s structure realigns and eventually the body is able to move with maximum efficiency and minimum effort.
With lower backache, often an occupational health problem, Pilates is fast becoming known for its effectiveness in strengthening the muscles that support the back.
