The concept of the Pilates Method is based on the correction of muscle-imbalance in the body due to a number of causes – leading to tensions, pains and less than optimal function to carry out our work/domestic/leisure activities.
A key element is that of engaging not only our superficial muscles , meant for movement, but our deeper,”core” postural muscles which protect and support the body structures.
It is a global technique, meaning that even specific exercises to correct areas of stiffness/weakness take into account the whole body, requiring a degree of awareness and concentration.
At the APPI, the original J.Pilates exercises have been analysed and modified to suit all levels of abilities, allowing for a progression whatever the starting level.
Whether it is for prevention or rehab , it is never too late to start !
I look forward to seeing you,
