Pilates was developed by a German man, Joseph Pilates and took off as a fitness craze across America and the UK. Pilates uses exercises that strengthen the body through core strength, body alignment and stretching. Pilates has 6 main principles: Concentration, control, centering, flow, precision and breathing. Pilates is a great low impact workout so all ages and abilities can take part. It also boosts flexibility and gives you a fantastic core.
Pilates is also amazing at getting you that perfect posture as it lengthens and straightens your spine thus helping to relieve lower back pain.
