The Art of Controlled Movements
The Pilates method is a very focused form of exercise that helps to strengthen and tone the body without adding muscle bulk. Over time, it helps to develop sculpted streamlined physique.
Pilates is based on the idea that bad habits or injuries lead to various imbalances and weaknesses in the body. Controlled, repetitive actions are used to realign and re-educate the body. Mental focus and technique is also very important to Pilates practice, used to encourage graceful movements and improved awareness.
The importance of “core strength”- a stable centre- is emphasised, as well as good alignment and posture, which can rehabilitate an injured body or strengthen a healthy one.
At Nonie Studio we are equipped with two Pilates reformers, allowing for private or semi-private instruction.
