What is Pilates
Pilates is a form of exercise that activates the deep core muscles in your body through a series of controlled movements that improves overall stability, flexibility, posture and strength.
Pilates is a great form of exercise for people with sporting injuries, back pain, neck pain, post pregnancy, pelvic instability, and people that want to improve sporting performance.
