Pilates Studio in Notting Hill – Classes by Appointment Only.
The Pilates method, originally called Contrology, was developed by Joseph Pilates to strengthen one’s body, by particularly focusing on the core muscles of the body. Practiced consistently, pilates helps to build strength, increase flexibility, and develops control and endurance in the body. Pilates exercises emphasise proper breathing techniques, correct alignment and posture in the body, with the objective of developing a stronger set of core muscles to improve coordination and balance. When Pilates is combined with regular cardiovascular exercise and a healthy diet, total wellbeing can be achieved.
