Pilates consists of slow, flowing, precise movements which challenge the muscles, but in particular, the deep postural muscles, especially the pelvic floor and the deep abdominals - known as your 'core stability' or 'girdle of strength'. It builds up your natural girdle, which supports your back, and is therefore often recommended by physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and doctors.
The method balances your body - releasing tight muscles and strengthening weak ones. It is safe, progressive and tailored to your abilities and needs. You don't need special clothing or footwear, just something comfortable, and bare feet or socks.
