Why do Pilates?
  1. Pilates is a wonderful way to tone and flatten your tummy. 
  2. Pilates will improve the muscle tone in your tummy, bottom, legs and arms. 
  3. Pilates gives you a whole  body workout and more!  We do standing Pilates in our classes as well as matwork which improves balance and helps to teach the body to work correctly whatever you are doing in life.
  4. Our classes make sure that you get the attention you need to work correctly so that you can get the most out of your exercise.
  5. Pilates will really help you if you have back problems.  Back pain experts like physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropracters recommend Pilates because although it is gentle movement, it is very targeted at specific muscle groups.
  6. Pilates is enjoyable, relaxing exercise that clears the mind and increases body awareness.
  7. Apart from building strength, the movements also improve your flexibility.

There are many benefits to Facial Pilates, as with ordinary Pilates you learn how to tone specific muscles but this focuses only the face.  The exercises will improve circulation to the skin leaving your skin looking brighter and more radiant.  This improved circulation caries vital oxygen and nutrients to skin and tissues whilst carrying away old and damaged cells.  Facial Pilates has been described as the non-surgical facelift. 

Whatever your age this technique will help to keep you looking better.  With this program of exercise you can tighten flabby throat muscles, reduce jowls, firm the lower cheeks, lift droopy eyelids, firm and refresh the eye areas, reduce lines on the forehead and brows, plump the upper lip area, promote a healthier complexion.

You will generally see results in a matter of weeks and improvement will continue for as long as you continue doing the exercises.  In a few minutes a day you can shape the facial muscles, build tone and preserve your appearance.
