Pilates is an exercise technique that was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920's for elite athletes and professional dancers. Over the years the Pilates technique has evolved to be more widely available for to anyone wanting to stay fit.

I was absolutely amazed at what Pilates exercises has done for me, as it not only helps you on the inside but makes you feel better from the inside out.  For years I suffered with a bad back and pains in my knees.  Pilates helped to improve my posture, strengthen my back and knees and gave me the confidence to run a 10k.

Pilates Barre

This Ballet-insprired workout is a fusion of Pilates, Ballet and Yoga exercises to up tempo dance music.  By combining these workout techniques, you will be using your whole body by strengthening your core and lengthening your muscles (such as abs, arms, hips and thighs) which will result in a toned body, improved posture and increased flexibility.  

The Barre itself is used as a prop for you to balance while doing the exercises and we also use other equipment such as bands and balls to focus on your core and stretches.   This low impact workout burns calories and gains lean muscle using small isometric movements with high repetitions.

So if you miss your days doing Ballet class, or enjoy Pilates and Yoga exercises or just want to improve your fitness level, why not give this class a try.
