Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates

Pilates is an exercise method that places emphasis on alignment, breathing, core strength and control, coordination, and balance. It is popular because it is low impact and generally safe for most people to participate in. The difficulty and intensity of the exercises can also be adjusted to be as low or as high as required. Regular Pilates training can help to improve strength, endurance, coordination, balance and posture.
