Basic Principals

In order to practice Pilates effectively it is important to follow the basic principals to the method


Also referred to as “core stability”. All Pilates movements stem from a strong centre. Pilates encourages the recruitment of deep core muscles that help to control and stabilise the movement .


Is key to the Pilates approach to movement and to the infinite corrections that need to be implemented through the learning process. Often the exercise can be similar to another exercise regimen, but the way it is executed is different.


Thoughtful awareness of your whole body as you perform the movement is key


Each movement in Pilates should be performed purposefully with control .


Pilates exercises should be controlled, graceful and flowing, lengthening outwards from a strong centre.


Breathing is a movement process in itself and therefore has a great bearing on the efficiency of each exercise performed. Synchronising the movement with the breath is a key part of Pilates.


Correct alignment throughout the movement is essential. By correctly aligning the body and bringing joints and soft tissue into their natural neutral zones, sound recruitment patterns are encouraged and the joints remain healthy.
