Surprisingly pilates can achieve probably more than you may think! It incorporates body strength and flexibility to make a fantastic, all round workout.

The benefits?

As well as your muscles, pilates actually strengthens your bones! Due to the low impact resistance, it can do more positive things to your body than you may think and can help those of you with injuries that can’t participate in high impact exercise. 

It strengthens your entire core with the use of stabilising and flexibility techniques, but in particular, pilates strengthens and tones your inner thighs like you wouldn’t believe! In fact, pilates strengthens several areas of your body, it is such a fantastic course of exercises to undertake for general wellbeing and also when you have an injury and need a little extra strength.
