Pilates was invented by Joseph Pilates in the 19th century to correct postural alignment whilst conditioning the deepest core muscles. It strengthens and lengthens muscles, increasing flexibility and joint mobility.


When you run, walk, ride a bike, or skip across a room, your core muscles are hard at work, keeping you upright, stabilising your body as your weight shifts, and absorbing impact from ground forces. Your body's core, the area around your trunk and pelvis, is where your center of gravity is located.


When you have good core stability, the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen work in harmony. They provide support to your spine for just about any activity.


Over time, a weak core can make you susceptible to poor posture and injury. For instance, the weaker your core muscles, the more likely you are to experience lower back pain. Strong core muscles keep you protected from such injuries.

"I have tried a lot of different Pilates classes over the years. I have seen small improvements but despite all my efforts I still couldn't do a sit up! Michelle was recommended to me by a friend and I started having 1:1 Pilates lessons. Michelle started with some very simple exercises and helped me to understand what each exercise should feel like when done correctly. For the first time ever, I feel I am progressing and my core strength is improving - I can even do a sit up!! As someone who has always hated exercise in any form, I can also say that I actually enjoy the classes. Michelle is very patient and non-judgemental and her passion for teaching Pilates shines through." Karen May 2017
