Pilates

The Pilates Method is a unique system of strengthening and stretching exercises developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s utilising specialised equipment and mat exercises.

The Pilates Method is without peer when it comes to rehabilitation for any form of injury, as well as increasing fitness, improving posture and sporting performance.
