How will Pilates improve my skiing or snowboarding?

Pilates is an incredible exercise system that combines elements of strengthening and stretching in every single exercise. The key focus is on improving posture and working from your centre so your balance will most definitely benefit. The incorporation of breath work will help you work on both releasing tension where you don’t need it and engaging the muscles that you do need. In addition to this you will gain better awareness in how you are moving your body, reducing the risk of injury. 


Will Pilates be beneficial to the other sports that I take part in?

Yes! Pilates is the perfect mind body exercises system that complements all other forms activities and sports. Even if you are not going to the alps you will still benefit from attending Pilates classes, because the focus is on the importance of strengthening and learning to work from your centre. You will gain awareness of the muscle groups of your centre that go beyond your abdominals, and how to access them to help improve your posture and balance.


Will I be able to practice at home or away?

Absolutely! The Pilates mat work can be done anywhere, and you do not even need a mat; a towel laid on a rug or carpet will do as long as your spine is supported.

You also have the option to attend Reformer Pilates classes in the studio, which are an excellent addition to mat work with focus on control, stability, core activation, posture, strength and technique using a variety of exercises which can be specifically tailored to you by adjusting spring tension. With only 6 clients per class you will have maximum tailored instruction from your teacher to gain maximum benefit!
