Whether you’re new to Pilates or you’ve been doing it for years, Pilates Klinik offers private, one-to-one classes to help you get the most out of your practice.
Since it was developed in the 1920s by Joseph H Pilates, Pilates has become fully established as a holistic workout for physical fitness and body toning. While other exercising fads come and go, Pilates has stood the test of time and remains firmly at the core of many people’s fitness regimes.
Here at Pilates Klinik, we specialise in dynamic Reformer Pilates, which has many benefits for people of all ages and body types.
So, what benefits can you expect from regular private Pilates sessions?
Improved posture and core stability
Poor posture is an extremely common condition which is particular exacerbated by modern lifestyles, where finding time to get away from the desk and do some exercise can often prove difficult. Using the core muscles of the abdominals, back, and pelvic floor to support our posture allows your shoulders to relax, your neck to move freely, and relieves stress on the hips, legs, and feet.
Pilates teaches you to better coordinate your body with a variety of different movements, reducing the chances of injury from overtraining one area. The workouts are designed to increase the connection between the mind and body, making it an ideal way to gradually build to a point where you can use your body to its full potential.
Improved strength and muscle tone
Pilates is a great way to tone your muscles, particularly the abdominals and other parts of the core. Not only is a strong core essential for pretty much any type of exercise and everyday tasks like lugging your shopping around, core training also helps to achieve those flat abs we’d all like to have.
Joseph Pilates used his system to rehabilitate injured soldiers, and he was himself quite ill as a child, apparently suffering from rickets. Over the years, his fitness system has gained much deserved public recognition as a method of rebuilding strength and function following injury. One of the main reasons for this is that it is very low impact.
Pilates is not a substitute for medical advice, but one of the best things about this form of exercise is that it provides you with a structured method of taking control and improving your own strength and stamina at a rate that’s sustainable for you.
Because your Pilates Klinik instructor will also assist and advise in developing the right Pilates programme to suit your needs, fitness goals and overall health, if you have any additional health needs, such as a pregnancy or injury rehabilitation, this will all be taken into account. Pilates is designed to benefit any age group and body type, and our classes are open to all, including beginners, Pilates devotees and those in between.
At Pilates Klinik, our combination of small class sizes and highly trained instructors allows for uniquely personal instruction and support. Alongside our small group Reformer Pilates classes, we also offer private individual Pilates tuition if that would be better suited to you. Just get in touch and our dedicated staff will be more than happy to help!
