Pilates

Pilates is a form of exercise that has been adapted and refined for the past 100 years, making it an exercise of choice for all. It is widely known for its holistic approach, improving strength, mobility, and well being.

Are you looking to enhance your strength, mobility, and overall ease of movement? Do long hours at a desk leave you feeling fatigued and constrained? Are you interested in improving your training with holistic, full-body exercises?

Pilates is a holistic approach to physical fitness that emphasizes the connection between the mind and body. Created by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century, this method combines strength training, flexibility, and breath control to create a balanced and functional body. The core principles of Pilates include concentration, control, centering, precision, breath, and flow. Pilates aims to build strength, improve flexibility, enhance posture, and promote a strong mind-body connection.

“The flows and pacing are controlled very well. I highly recommend this class to anyone and everyone”
Yes, Pilates is often recommended for rehabilitation. It can aid in the recovery process by improving strength and body awareness while minimising the risk of re-injury. Here at BRH our Pilates instructors are qualified physiotherapists who are able to guide you through this process.
Pilates is a low-impact exercise system that focuses on core strength, mobility, and body awareness. Unlike yoga, it emphasises controlled movement and uses specialised equipment. While yoga promotes flexibility and relaxation, Pilates primarily targets core stability and strength.

Pilates is adaptable to all levels. Many beginner-friendly classes and exercises are available. Instructors can modify routines to suit your experience and fitness level, making it accessible for newcomers and challenging for advanced athletes.

The frequency of Pilates sessions can vary, but consistency is key. For noticeable improvements, aim for 2-3 sessions per week. You may begin feeling better within a few weeks, but substantial long-term changes often occur with dedicated practice.

“The Sunrise Pilates classes have been wonderful in helping me develop a more mindful awareness of my body, muscles and strength.”
