What is Pilates?

The Pilates method, originally named Contrology by founder Joseph H. Pilates (1883-1967), is a unique system of movements designed to enhance posture, muscular strength, mobility and flexibility through the conscious development of body awareness and a focused mind-body connection.

The beauty of Pilates is its broad inclusivity, adaptability and versatility, attracting and fulfilling devotees of all ages and abilities. As a whole body experience, the Pilates method complements other sports and activities, whether you are striving to improve your posture and personal best as a runner, golfer, water sports enthusiast or cyclist or enhance your strength and mobility as a keen artist, traveller or gardener.


Some of the many benefits of Pilates are:

• Improved posture, body awareness, strength, bone density, balance, flexibility and mobility
• Relief from back pain through realignment, strengthening and the release of tension
• Reduced stress and tension through focused breathing and relaxation
• Enhanced injury/illness rehabilitation and prevention of reoccurring injury
• Encourages a good night's sleep and sense of wellbeing.
