Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is a "mind-body" form of exercise that can literally change your life. Mental focus and concentration are as important as the physical energy brought to each movement. The mind-body connection works in harmony to improve physique, posture, self confidence and an extraordinary feeling of wellbeing and fitness.

Pilates uses some complex apparatus to promote uniform development of the body, to create the exact positions and resistances that are necessary to execute the required movement. The emphasis of the exercises is on precision and quality of movement, not quantity. We will lead you carefully through the most appropriate set of exercises that match your needs and abilities and ensure that you leave each session closer to your goal. Our studio is equipped with the latest developments in Pilates Equipment, matched only by our expertise in its proper use.

Regardless of age or physical condition (we train Tri-Athletes and Octogenarians!) you will find something at Expert Pilates for you.
