What is it?

Created nearly 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates, the Pilates Method is a system of exercises designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. Today there are different schools and approaches, however the two most commonly practised forms are mat work and equipment (Reformer) classes.


A Pilates instructor will generally offer a structured exercise programme which will build your movement skills step by step, based on the ‘Fundamentals’ of alignment, breathing and centring (Core Stability).

Why is it good for me?

Pilates is known to assist with:

  • Flexibility and strength
  • Joint mobility
  • Improved posture
  • Balance & Co-ordination
  • Bone and muscle strength
  • Improved dexterity and grip
  • Preparing for childbirth and getting in shape afterwards

What equipment do I need?

When you go to a Pilates session, the instructor will generally provide everything you need so you just need to turn up ready to exercise in comfortable exercise gear (ie. trackpants or leggings and a t-shirt). You may be asked to bring a towel to use to support your head.

Most Pilates group classes cover mat work exercises, so you may want to take along your own mat if you prefer.
