Hampshire Pilates Classes
Pilates has been utilized for decades for improving core and overall strength, mobility, efficiency for correct muscular recruitment, and reducing postural muscle imbalances that can lead to pain or spasms. Pilates is based on a method of no-impact exercises developed by Joseph Pilates, who had the fortune of being born to a Gymnast father and naturopath mother. Pilates believed that mental and physical health were intertwined and the exercises which he created had the goal of supporting and strengthening both the mind and the body.
