What is Pilates?
Pilates is a low impact, high intensity exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. Pilates called his method Contrology because he believed his method uses the mind to control the muscles. The method focuses on the uniform even development of the body using smooth, controlled precise movements.
There are a vast number of different exercises that target different parts of the body and focus on developing different muscle strengths and elements of movement control.
The exercises can be done on the floor (mat) alone or with props or they can be done with various pieces of unique equipment (reformer, trapeze table, combo or wunda chair, ladder barrel, spine corrector, foam rolls, magic circles and more) in the studio.
Some of the benefits (and goals) of Pilates are:
- Mobility (Flexibility)
- Efficient Movement
- Flowing Movement
- Proper Posture (Improved Posture)
- Mental and Spiritual Rejuvenation
- Self Awareness
- Self Confidence
- Restoration of Natural Animal Movement
- Integration of Body Mind and Spirit
- Sense of Well Being
- Enhanced Quality of Life
Due to the wide variety of exercises and the fact that the exercises can be progressed to make them more challenging or regressed to make them easier Pilates is the ideal form of exercise for all.
Pilates can be used to improve athletic performance for athletes and sportsmen. Pilates is especially good for improving core control, balance, co-ordination and flexibility all things that are important
Pilates is also an ideal rehabilitative exercise system for people with injuries or physical limitations and has consequently become popular with large numbers of rehabilitation professionals including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and physicians (Sports Medicine, Orthopaedic, GP, Obstetrics and Gynaecology).
Pilates is also an ideal form of exercise to maintain general physical fitness and well being. It is often the choice of many people because the method helps maintain strength and flexibility without causing undue bulking up of muscles.
At Dynamic Stability we offer both Personal and Group Sessions. The group Sessions range from a Semi Private to small groups of up to four people doing personalised workouts or Group classes where everyone does essentially the same thing with up to 10 people doing Mat or Allegro (group reformer) workouts. With all personalised programs your initial appointment will be with a physiotherapist.
