Pilates is suitable for people of all ages from those with restricted mobility to an elite athlete.
Pilates is both a mind and body conditioning method devised by Joseph Pilates, designed to bring strength, flexibility and control to the body.
It teaches you how to use your body well, building core strength from the inside out and working all of the deep postural muscles to bring the body into correct balance and alignment.
Strengthening the core muscles will provide support for your spine and improve alignment. With regular practice Pilates will improve your posture and help to alleviate joint discomfort.
Amanda has been trained with Body Control Pilates. Body Control Pilates exercises have been adapted from the exercises developed by Joseph Pilates in order to ensure they are even more accessible to everyone.
Body Control Pilates is medically approved and holistic in nature. Awareness of your own body is central to the method which teaches you to be in control of your body, handle stress more effectively and achieve relaxation more easily.
Pilates is recommended by osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists.
