What is Pilates?
Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.

The focus of Pilates is correct movement, quality not quantity, core stabilisation and postural correction. One of the main benefits of Pilates, from a Physiotherapist’s perspective, is that the technique can be successful in correcting muscle imbalances. These imbalances are caused by us overusing certain muscles whilst others are neglected and become weak.

"I’ve been doing Kates Pilates classes for over a year now to improve my core strength and flexibility.
It’s an excellent supplement to my cycling training and has helped improve my performance on the bike. 
I’ve had a bag full of personal bests in time trials this year… thank you Kate!"

"Performance Pilates with kate has had a positive influence upon me developing my core strength and stability for triathlon. 
I feel a lot more comfortable in my bike position and have noticed a marked difference with my running posture.
I would certainly recommend this class for all endurance athletes."
