Pilates is a form of exercise with an emphasis on improving core strength, muscle tone, joint mobility, balance and posture. Varying in intensity, Pilates classes can be gentle or challenging and also help to relieve stress and tension.
Agile Pilates includes the use of the Reformer Machine – which uses a system of pulleys, springs, handles, straps and a gliding platform. Its low impact nature relieves stress on joints and offers versatile resistance for exercising in various positions. With its emphasis on strengthening core muscles, it can aid pelvic and spinal alignment to improve posture and increase flexibility. Further equipment includes The Tower, Combo Chair and Barrel – all of which can be adapted to provide support for beginners or those who suffer with pain and injuries, as well as offering resistance for those looking to challenge their body.
