In addition to our Yoga classes, we offer a Pilates class at 9am, Sunday to Friday at the Garden Hall. Our pilates instructor is also available for private sessions. Pilates can be included as an integral part of our weight loss program or yoga holiday packages.
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s as a method of physical exercise that uses the mind to control the muscles and increase their strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination. Focus is placed on developing strong core muscles to greatly improve the efficiency and flow of all body movements. Pilates assists to develop longer, leaner muscles, relieve back pain and refresh the mind and body.
The classes will teach you the importance of proper breathing to increase oxygen circulation and execute body movements with maximum power and efficiency. You will learn simple and effective exercises that can be integrated into your daily routine.
