Pilates is an exercise methodology created by Joseph Pilates in the 1930s to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Using current anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular, fascial and skeletal systems, the method is precise and alignment focused to target specific areas. This allows strength building without compression or bulk and creates appropriate flexibility and efficiency of movement throughout the whole system.
I qualified in 2013 as a mat teacher with Polestar Pilates UK and teach Pilates classes and privates in Surrey and London. Polestar Pilates are leaders in informed movement and rehabilitation and promote a holistic approach for working with the whole person. The Polestar Pilates curriculum has earned the reputation worldwide as the most scientifically sound Pilates curriculum, setting the standard in Pilates education.
