Pilates is a unique way of getting your whole body into good condition and toning up your muscles. It consists of a series of exercises which are suitable for everyone, which develop both strength and suppleness, and its aim is to make the muscles required for good posture even firmer. Pilates gives priority to the movements being performed well, freeing up tension, and developing good muscle coordination and control.
