Pilates is a holistic exercise approach based on the correct facilitation and endurance of the core stabilising muscles of the spine, pelvis and shoulders. There is strong focus on body awareness, correct breathing and good posture.
Joseph Pilates founded this exercise approach in the 1920’s in New York, where he worked with and rehabilitated many famous dancers, actors and performers of that time.
Clinical Pilates combines the theories of Joseph Pilates with physiotherapy knowledge, new scientific research and an evidence-based approach to exercise. This makes it a safer and more effective way to prevent and rehabilitate from injury.
