Back Care & Pilates

"Pilates is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work" - Joseph Pilates

The Pilates method, dramatically changes the way your body looks, feels and performs by helping to build strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on lengthening and aligning the spine, rather than on building muscle mass.

The program focuses on the abdominal and lower back, region which is considered the body’s “powerhouse” as a result Pilates is popular in the field of fitness and rehabilitation. Pilates is effective in the alleviation, treatment and prevention of back pain, most muscular-skeletal problems and injuries can be corrected with Pilates.

Furthermore, Pilates can be used to progress individuals through the movements that represent their daily activities.
