Pilates was created by a very clever man, Joseph Pilates, in answer to improve back strength, flexibility and all over co ordination. He was way ahead of his time and he worked with a varied clientele from Athletic dancers and gymnasts, to ordinary people with chronic pain.
His techniques are used world wide to help improve posture, core strength and prevent back pain. The body functions at its best when we can execute movements correctly. Through Pilates we can learn or re-learn how to move in a way that strengthens our back and leaves back pain in the past.
"As a ‘bad back’ sufferer, I find Elizabeth’s Pilates classes invaluable. Not only do they help to keep me pain free, but strengthening my ‘core’ and flattening my tummy helps my clothes fit better too!" - Harriette
One to one sessions will enable you to understand what the key areas of your core are, why they are important and how to use it.
Everyone who has ever suffered with back pain will realise the importance of finding a technique that prevents its return.
"As the instructor I, myself have suffered from back injury, with falls from horses and know how desperate you can feel with the pain. Learning to build strength and look after our backs is imperative for long and happy lives!" Elizabeth.
