One of the best things about pilates is that you can start at any age with any level of fitness so it really is for everyone & if you are committed the progress can be seen & felt very quickly.
Pilates improves strength, flexibility, balance & body awareness (posture). The exercises are designed in such a way that they provide support & stability to the lower back. Particular emphasis is placed on core strength (abdominals). Why is strengthening your core so important? Because these muscles help stabilise the pelvis, this is important as it helps ease back aches as well as hip, knee, neck & shoulder tension.
