Prior to attending your first class you will be asked to fill out a short Art of Pilates health questionnaire. This will help us to be aware of any health problems before you start your Pilates journey.

The Pilates method is the art of controlled movements. Pilates puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core and improving balance. Everyone is encouraged to exercise at their own pace to get the best out of their practice.

If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and will help you to achieve a healthy, balanced and happy life.
