PILATES CAN REALLY CHANGE YOUR BODY
The Pilates method [pronounced Pi-lah-tees] is truly the ideal exercise, a mind-body method that combines the eastern concepts of yoga, breath, flexibility and relaxation with the western concepts of strength and endurance.
Pilates, which aims to create a balance in the body and is designed to cater for the needs of the individual, is more dynamic than yoga but less aggressive, competitive and high-impact than aerobics, jogging or gym-work, which, unlike Pilates, can place damaging strain on the joints and heart.
Designed to enhance both physical and mental well-being and to develop a lithe and harmonious body, Pilates sculpts, tones and stretches the body through gentle low-impact movement and gives stunning emotional and psychological results, lengthens and strengthens muscles, enhances flexibility, increases circulation, relaxes the body and mind . . . from the inside out.

WHAT IS PILATES ?
Joseph Pilates created Pilates over 80 years ago. He originally named his method Contrology, because he believed in the power of our minds to control our bodies. He quoted : One of the major results of Contrology is gaining the mastery of your mind over the complete control of your body.
- Pilates is an exercise.
It develops the strength and the flexibility of the body through a series of exercises that target individual muscle groups. The goals are superior core muscles [abdominal, buttocks and back] and integration of the spine and limbs.
Each exercise is executed with a limited number of repetitions. The aim is to perform the exercises with deep concentration, complete control, and body awareness. Like martial arts and dance, Pilates requires regular practice and patience to achieve perfection.
- Pilates is movement.
It utilises the core to initiate a wide range of movements in a controlled and flowing manner.
- Pilates is not purely physical.
Pilates adopts this Mind and Body approach to exercise, focusing both on the mind and on muscular system to achieve mental and physical harmony.
People often ask if they can de-stress by doing Pilates. Pilates requires mental focus, which means your mind stays sharp throughout the workout. Therefore, a good Pilates workout should leave you feeling energised and alert !

Ideally, Pilates should be practiced 2-3 times per week in approximately one-hour-long sessions. Pilates may be practiced in a group or private setting.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A PILATES SESSION ?
During a Pilates session, you will be taught an ordered series of exercises either on the Mat or on using specially designed equipment such as the Reformer and Cadillac.
Depending on your needs, a session may be gentle or highly challenging but with no impact on the joints. Modifications to the exercises are possible to suit each individual.
Your first few sessions will be focused on postures corrections and establishing proper forms. At this stage, you are unlikely to perspire as if you have done a gym workout. Be patient . . . The benefits of Pilates will stay with you for a lifetime, so it is important to inculcate good habits.
After a few sessions, you can expect to stand straighter, feel more energized, and be stronger and more flexible.
Once you understand the philosophy of Pilates, it can be translated into any format to enhance other sports activities or simply the way you perform every daily task.
