Our Pilates Bristol classes are ideal for anyone looking to improve their core strength, flexibility and agility whilst maintaining a health and positive mind. Pilates uses precise movements alongside breathing work so you focus and concentrate on the exact movement you’re doing. It takes away worrying about other things as you’re completely in the now and moment of your class. As you move through the different exercise rhythms and breathing patterns, your body will become more relaxed and at ease but at the same time stronger, strengthened and more open.
Improvement can be saw in the core muscles which are the abdominals, lower back, hips and bum which become more defined and toned. Pilates classes are a great choice of exercise, whether you’re a beginner or more advanced because they help to support your muscle control, strength and flexibility which prevents you from injuries. Pilates is different to yoga, although both are similar as they use breathing work to relax the mind. Pilates classes use different postures that challenges your body more as you need to move your limbs, whereas yoga uses static poses.
