Pilates Classes

Pilates is a low impact, total body method of exercise. It is a balanced blend of strength and flexibility exercises with a focus on strengthening the core (abdominal, back and pelvic floor muscles). Quality rather than quantity is the focus, using breathing techniques, precision of movement and concentration to enable the body to work more efficiently in sports, activities and daily life. Mondays 1.30 - 2.30pm, Tutor Antoinette McKay.
