What is Pilates? The Ultimate Guide to Pilates
Pilates is a series of exercises that involve stretching, strengthening and stabilizing the body to achieve a more balanced and healthier lifestyle.
During the 19th century, Pilates was primarily a form of exercise that had its origins in military and gymnastic training regimens. In 1917, Joseph Pilates developed his own variation of this exercise program by borrowing techniques from yoga, callisthenics and European physical culture.
Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on the core and other targeted muscles in the body. It includes various movements such as stretch, breathing and strength exercises. The ultimate goal of Pilates is to increase flexibility and muscle strength while decreasing back pain. In our Beginners Pilates class, Coz introduces you to the very basics of this movement technique.
What are the Benefits of Pilates?
Pilates is a low-impact exercise that focuses mostly on developing core stability, control and strength. Pilates can help you develop strength and flexibility in your muscles.
There are a number of benefits associated with Pilates. They include:
– Improved postural alignment
– Increased body awareness
– Improved spinal mobility
– Enhanced respiratory capacity
– Improved muscle tone, circulation, and balance
Pilates is a form of exercise that is focused on strengthening the body’s core. It can also help people who suffer from chronic back pain or other ailments. These benefits make it worth giving our Beginners Pilates Class a try!
Pilates is not only an excellent way to improve your body’s physical condition but also your mental health. It helps you manage stress better and can help you deal with depression by teaching you about the importance of breathing for reducing anxiety.
Understanding the Benefits of Pilates for Injuries
Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on developing core strength and lengthening the spine. It improves posture, reduces injury risk, and improves general health. Because Pilates works to improve your posture, it can be a great option for those with back pain or other injuries or illness that affect their centre of gravity. Pilates can also help build muscle mass over time.
Pilates exercise has been shown to reduce pain in many areas including lower back pain, shoulder injury/dislocation/impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, hip dislocation and much more.
Our very own Pilates expert Coz started studying Pilates after experiencing her own injury (learn more about her story here).

Preparing for a Beginner Pilates Class
Many people who are new to Pilates consider it as just another form of yoga. It’s not that simple though! You may find Pilates to be a slightly higher intensity than yoga to begin with and it’s important to come into to practice with no preconceptions of it being the same as yoga.
All you need for our beginner Pilates class is a mat and some water, and this is the same for most beginner classes everywhere – whether face-to-face or online.
As you progress, you may find that you can add in equipment such as balls, resistance bands and even sofa cushions! We have some equipment-based lessons alongside our no equipment needed classes over on our platform – check out the membership options here.
