The core muscles are the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and spine, and as you develop your core strength you develop stability throughout your whole torso. This is one of the ways Pilates helps in the recovery from injury such as back pain, as well as helping to prevent injury. Further benefits include improving posture by creating better alignment as well as increasing muscle flexibility and joint mobility. Pilates is also relaxing and very enjoyable too!

PureStretch – what is it?

Stretching in exercise is the most neglected part of any workout. PureStretch is designed to move and stretch the entire body while giving the core a good strong workout. PureStretch combines the core strength of Pilates and the flexibility from Yoga resulting in increased flexibility, movement and strength.


Pilates 4 Sport and its benefits

Pilates exercises create a stronger and more stable core which helps improve posture by strengthening the back and abdominal muscles as well as increasing flexibility, strength and balance.

Pilates helps reduce tightening of the neck and shoulders as well as the hips thereby increasing the range of movement in these areas.

A strong core ultimately helps to prevent injury and promotes faster recovery from injury. It also helps to improve performance because you move more efficiently, increases stamina by decreasing muscle fatigue resulting in improved times.
