Why Pilates?

The many benefits of Pilates are well documented and as a result its popularity has grown hugely in recent years. So why is it so popular?

Pilates is incredibly adaptable. It is truly for everybody whether a sports person wanting to better their performance, a sedentary professional looking to improve their posture or a retiree keen to keep active. It is gentle but effective in improving balance in the older population and challenging and energising for the more able. The repertoire is extensive and provides scope for everybody to improve their conditioning and mobility, either in a group mat class or on the Pilates equipment.

Mat Pilates is portable and sessions can be held in the home as well as small group classes in central Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding villages. Pilates Studio equipment sessions are held at a small studio close to Tunbridge Wells train station and provide individual attention with the assistance of the Reformer with tower bar, the Pilates chair and other small studio equipment.

“Carol has taught me Pilates in a small group for at least 6 years. It has helped me immensely to keep supple whilst enjoying the serious stretching combined with care and giggles. I can’t recommend her classes enough .She has always been professional and her enthusiasm for Pilates is boundless.”
