If you need anymore reasons to start however we asked our head Pilates instructor Erica to give us the 5 great reasons to start doing Pilates today!

1.Pilates takes care of the whole body.

Joseph Pilates designed his program as a way to uniformly develop strength, mobility and flexibility of the whole body, mind and soul. He understood that through a physical fitness program the balance of all these things. He believed it would lead to a well aligned, pain-free, highly functioning and overall very happy human being. “When all your muscles are properly developed you will perform your work with minimum effort and maximum pleasure”Joseph H. Pilates.

2.Pilates can take you from rehab to really awesome!

The progressive nature of the Pilates system and its extensive repertoire of exercises means that no matter your level of ability or fitness a Pilates program is suitable for you. From the most basic rehab to the most challenging and dynamic strength workouts, and everything in between. Real Pilates will make you really awesome bringing you more strength, mobility, confidence and joy in life.

3.Pilates can be applied to all your daily activities.

The deep understanding and awareness of your own body that is developed through a Pilates program is immediately applicable to all your daily activities. You will sit and also walk taller, move with more fluidity and grace and have an enduring strength that can help with all kinds of manual and physical tasks.

4.Pilates contributes to your happiness and mental-wellbeing

Two major components of a Pilates workout are Concentration and Breath. These also happen to be the fundamental components of an effective meditation practice. Before the recent trend in ‘mindful movement’ Joseph Pilates was effectively incorporating these elements into his method of daily movement practice. One of his most famous quotes says it all, “Physical fitness is the first requisite to happiness”.Joseph H. Pilates.

5.Pilates is all about you

This is so that the teacher can guide the student in a way that best suits the individual body and their personal needs.

Meet our new Piliates Instructor – Winda Leeks

After having my children, I had a fair amount of back pain caused by the stress of the pregnancies on my body. I became more aware of my posture and soon discovered how Pilates can increase core strength and flexibility.
After much study and development, I gained a Diploma in Pilates and have been instructing since 2013.  I am passionate about Pilates and people and committed to each individual and their needs. I love my work and am highly dedicated to providing the most from my instruction.
I work with clients to develop training programs to incorporate appropriate breathing patterns and techniques to ensure optimal performance of every movement.  In this way we can achieve fitness goals to obtain maximum body control, balance, mental wellness and strength.
I have treated clients suffering from a variety of conditions, including scoliosis, back pain and shoulder injury.
