Matwork Pilates

Matwork and Small Equipment Pilates Classes in Central Aberdeen

Pilates is an exercise technique focusing on strengthening the deepest muscles of the body. All exercises recruit these muscles and movement is controlled from the centre, Joseph Pilates referred to this as the “powerhouse” more commonly now known as “the core”.

Pilates exercises mobilise, lengthen and strengthen the body, this in turn improves posture and wellbeing, decreases the chance of injury, relieves stress and tension and brings the body back into balance.

The movements are safe and effective and beneficial for all ages and abilities, from helping with day to day activities to enhancing sports performance.

Matwork Pilates offers a varied mix of traditional Pilates Matwork exercises, Fitness Pilates, Functional Core, and Stretching movements, all based around the

PRINCIPLES OF PILATES

.

Small equipment is also used to assist, add resistance and challenge the body further.
