Pilates is a system of exercises devised to promote strength and flexibility. There are many variations of Pilates, here at Everest we teach a method of Pilates called Body Control Pilates. This method is a modern, clinical variety with more focus on pelvic stability and anatomy during movement. Body Control Pilates have broken down many of the exercises to make them more accessible and safe for all backgrounds.
What to expect from a Pilates session
During your first session you will be taught the basic components of Pilates and begin building the foundations for the later, more challenging exercises. Each session will become more progressively physically difficult in line with your own development. Each Pilates session will be made up of slow, controlled, flowing movements. These exercises will challenge core stability, muscular strength, joint range of motion, co-ordination and concentration – building up each of these aspects.
Who is it for? Pilates is wonderfully versatile, which means it can be applied to help almost any individual achieve their goals. Pilates has been particularly helpful to:
People suffering with back pain and/or chronic pain
Athletes or active individuals people looking to improve core stability and flexibility
People looking to improve their posture
