Pilates exercises help develop a strong 'core', the deep abdominals and the muscles closest to the spine. Pilates lengthens and stretches all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced way improving strength, flexibility, balance and body awareness. The Pilates method is taught to suit each person and exercises are regularly re-evaluated to ensure they
are appropriate for that person. Due to this individual attention, the method suits everyone from elite athletes to people with limited mobility, pregnant women and people with a low-level of fitness.
Health benefits include: Improved flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, improved stabilisation of spine, improved posture, improved co-ordination and balance, relaxation of shoulder, neck and upper back, increased body awareness and reduced stress and anxiety.
I'm Sandie, I'm a 39 year old mother of four, living in Fordingbridge and I have been practising Pilates for over 12 years. I love it! I personally think it is life-changing and anyone can do it - anywhere.
My classes are small, encouraging and fun. We will work together to get the results you want, whether it's a flatter tummy, firmer bottom, improving posture and flexibility - or all of the above. Pilates really can change the way you look, move and feel.
