Some of us want to feel more steady on our feet when walking, others are looking for strong skiing legs and some of us what flexibility to get up and down easily when playing with our kids.

I see my Pilates clients do best, when they are kind to themselves and listen to their bodies. Learn to eat and move intuitively. A balanced approach to exercise, taking into consideration your lifestyle, commitments and timeframe will set you up for success.
Pilates has helped me to understand that Pilates can achieve many beneficial outcomes. Of course, there’s the desired physical outcome of long, lean and toned muscles, a strong core and increased flexibility. Also, the emotional benefits of a healthy mind and clear head are outcomes that also flow from your Pilates practise.

Pilates is a great way to connect mind and body. Learning Pilates can be a nice form of meditation as you focus your concentration on your body. Mindfulness that you learn in Pilates can help you stay present in your daily activities and also help reduce stress and anxiety.
