What is PILATES?

Pilates is a proven exercise technique which has been in use for over 80 years.
It relies on strengthening the core postural muscles, which stabilise the torso.
By correcting muscle imbalances your body is realigned and can move efficiently and effectively.

The result is a longer, leaner, stronger-looking body. The method is proving popular not only for people with back pain and recurring injuries, but also top athletes and sports professionals. Pat Cash and the 'All Blacks' have benefited from the exercises.

Pilates is also gaining increasing support from the medical profession. Therefore we work closely with Physiotherapists, G.P.'s Osteopaths and Chiropractors.


A natural logical & common-sense approach to exercise.
