Pilates is a mind and body conditioning exercise programme that benefits the deep postural muscles of the spine to improve overall core stability and posture.

Developed by the late Joseph Pilates, the Pilates method is a mind-body conditioning program initially designed for rehabilitation purposes during the early twentieth century. Pilates was later adopted by dancers as its philosophy blended well with their focus on core strength, co-ordination, flexibility and posture.

Pilates is based on a set of principles which exercise the whole body through a range of mat and equipment based exercises. Pilates combines the co-ordination of deep postural and stability muscles, breathing, and arm and leg movements with postural correction, suppleness and flexibility. With regular practice, Pilates positively changes the body.

More recently Pilates has been adapted by the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) to provide a specific program for athletes of all levels to increase their speed of rehabilitation.  The APPI Pilates Method is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.

Pilates appears to be the art of relaxing and doing very little for an hour, then later feeling muscles you didn't know you had reminding you that, actually, you worked very hard for an hour!  Sally is an excellent teacher, always correcting form without appearing over-fussy and adapting to the various ability levels in the class with ease and humour.  Her physiotherapy background is particularly reassuring when I'm being forced out of my comfort zone - all the time! - and the results are well worth the effort.
