Benefits of a Pilates Based Practice: Develop a Strong and Stable Core and Optimal Movement Education

What is Pilates?

Pilates, pronounced Pi-laa-teez, is an innovative system of mind-body exercise first developed by Joseph Pilates (1883-1967). Joseph Pilates developed a series of 34 core/total body exercises to do on the mat – his original work he described as “Contrology”.

CentreFit Program is a mat/floor inspired Pilates workout created and designed by Wendy. This program uses your own body as resistance to continually challenge and engage your core. Each class will help develop a strong and stable core while promoting flexibility, mobility and a touch of cardiovascular challenges. The exercises are always tailored to the clients’ need, body types, weaknesses and strengths.
