What is Pilates?
An innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates. Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can even help alleviate back pain.
Professional dancers have known the benefits of Pilates for decades. Top athletes use it for strength, flexibility, and injury prevention.
Developed from the rehabilitation techniques of Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a safe, sensible exercise system using a floor mat or equipment, that will help you look and feel your very best. No matter what your age or condition, it will help you to become strong and lean.

Yoga means “to join” or “union”; the union between Body, Mind, and Spirit. The practice of Yoga deepens this Body, Mind, and Spirit connection, so that you are better able to focus, become more grounded, strengthen your immune, nervous and respiratory systems, maintain a healthy body weight, increase your flexibility and reduce stress and tension. Yoga also stimulates and opens the chakras, or energy centres, allowing energy to flow freely within the physical body, enhancing your overall health and wellbeing. Give yourself the “gift of yoga” and enjoy a more harmonious, healthy and happy life.
