About Pilates

What is Pilates?

Pilates is such a large subject, and the practices within it are always evolving as we learn more about the capability of the body. Briefly put – there are 6 main Principles of Pilates that are highlighted in our movements, and these are all worked on at some level, during every session. A focus of any Pilates session is to raise awareness of non-aligned areas that may be due to injury, sitting for long periods of time or just natural bad posture and that puts the spine out of its natural position.

Wendy has a warm, friendly style of teaching combined with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the human body.
Her ability and willingness to adapt to individual strengths and weaknesses adds a personal touch to our Pilates sessions which I look forward to every week.
