What is Pilates?

Pilates is a series of exercises developed in the early 20th century by physical trainer, Joseph Pilates. It is thought that Pilates was inspired by Calisthenics, Yoga and Ballet. Joseph Pilate’s father was a prize-winning gymnast. His mother a naturopath.

Our Pilates retreat is focused on improving flexibility, building core strength and developing control and endurance throughout the entire body. Pilates places emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core and improving coordination and balance. The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, lower back and hips, is often called the “powerhouse” and is thought to be the key to a person’s stability.

Move, relax, breath!

What to Expect At Our Pilates Retreat?

Lucy our instructor has a great eye for detail and brings this precision to her teaching, encouraging clients to really be ‘in their own body’s’ to get the most out of their exercise classes. Her passion for both Pilates shines through and overflows to everyone within the room. Each class is your own personal practice, easily adaptable to suit all ages, experience and capabilities. With the knowledge that most people only exercise/stretch 3 to 4 hours per week, Lucy imparts the knowledge to assist healthy, efficient and pain free movement for the many hours not spent exercising and stretching.

The Pilates’ system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.

Through movement, we also benefit and create efficiency in all systems of the body including vascular, respiratory, endocrine and digestive.
