Pilates is an exercise method designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. It is based upon an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems.
Pilates classes take a holistic approach to the body, and the exercises used help to integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
Pilates can be of benefit to almost everyone, from the very active to the more sedentary. If your work or your lifestyle requires you to sit by your desk, computer, or in the car for significant periods, possibly causing neck, shoulder or back pain, then Pilates may help by improving posture and consequently performance.
Eirian also uses Pilates and other somatic techniques for the management and understanding of long-term (chronic) pain and rehabilitation after injury or surgery.
