The Pilates Boutique – Pilates & Ballet Conditioning in Heathfield, East Sussex


Pilates Mat Work

Joseph Pilates founded Pilates over 80 years ago.  He was at the forefront of explaining imbalance theories within the body and developed a series of 34 original mat based exercises.

Over the last 8 decades Pilates has evolved into an exercise regime designed to correct muscle imbalance by promoting core stability, flexibility, postural awareness and endurance.  Pilates is a gentle but physical workout that will teach you how to become fully aware of your body, your posture and your movement patterns.

Pilates will improve your strength, muscle tone and leave you feeling relaxed with a sense of wellbeing.  Routine in Pilates will allow you to recognise incorrect movement patterns, isolate them and correct them. This makes the discipline of Pilates practice invaluable for injury prevention as well as for rehabilitation.
