Mental health is vital to our well being. Pilates is proven to help those suffering from anxiety and depression and its benefits stretch to improving sleep, energy and an overall sense of contentment.

Maybe the simpler question would be: Why not Pilates?

There are no other forms of exercise that can offer such a broad range of benefits, both physically and mentally.

Pilates really is the go-to exercise for a clear mind and a healthy body with its unique ability to make you feel relaxed, elated and in seriously great shape.

It lengthens and stretches all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced fashion, improving flexibility, strength, balance and body awareness.

Yoga brings the body and mind together and is built on three main elements – exercise, breathing and meditation. Both yoga and Pilates improve muscular and postural strength.

Always consult your doctor before embarking on any new fitness program, especially if you have a pre-existing medical condition or have not exercised in a long time.
