Pilates

Pilates ClassPilates, originally called Contrology was devised by Joseph Pilates to train and rehabilitate his fellow interns during World War 1, He developed the exercises to strengthen the body and the mind as a whole.

Pilates focuses on improving posture, mobility, strength, flexibility and coordination by using the deep core and stabilising muscles. At Variety Fitness we believe that Pilates is for every body and offer beginners, intermediate and advanced classes to suit every age and ability.

Pilates is an effective tool for reducing back pain and is recommended by physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and doctors, with this in mind Sarah has developed a specialist back care Pilates class that is safe for any back issue. We also offer pregnancy and post natal pilates classes.
