Pilates is a progressive exercise method designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s. It improves your posture, strength and flexibility, leading to a more efficient and toned body by developing the core muscles.
Pilates has gained wide recognition by the medical and sporting professions, being widely used to aid recovery from back pain in patients and professional athletes.
Elaine gained her Pilates Certification in 2003 with the APPI and has been teaching ever since. She runs a comprehensive programme, from Antenatal to Advanced classes and also individual or small group classes are available for a more tailored approach.
Elaine uses a variety of equipment, such as magic circles, rollers, weights and therabands to keep classes varied and challenging.
She says, “Pilates can be beneficial to everyone. Relaxing and fun, but also challenging depending on what you want to achieve!”
