The Pilates Method is a system of movement and therapeutic exercise developed over a span of 60 years by German born athlete and physical therapy pioneer, Joseph H Pilates.
Utilizing the specialised apparatus he designed, the method works by toning muscles as well as balancing muscular force at the joint. It stimulates circulation through facilitating muscular flexibility, join range of motion and proper musculoskeletal alignment.
In addition, it promotes new neuromuscular patterns, heighted by body awareness and more precise coordination and control.
All these skills combined help to prevent and reduce future re-injury, in some cases, alleviate chronic pain altogether.
At Pivotal Pilates, Rachel has a mixture of Peak Pilates and Balanced Body Apparatus, therefore, offering support for you all.
The apparatus helps you to feel exercises that you may otherwise think you couldn’t achieve without it.
The design of the apparatus is to assist you (when you need more support) and resist (when you are looking for a more challenging workout).
