Want to get rid of those twinges or stiffness in the joints? Then try Pilates.  It can help to release muscle tension and improve posture and flexibility to relieve aches and pains.  Daily stress and tension in our working lives is often inevitable, continuing to carry this tension in our muscles and bodies is not.  You don’t have to put up with it!.   
 
Even if you workout regularly with aerobic exercise such as cycling, running, dance, weightlifting etc – this too can leave residual muscle tension through over contraction of certain muscle groups.  That’s why top sports people turn to pilates or yoga to improve their performance and avoid injury – they know it makes sense.  
Instability through the pelvis and "core" of the body is a common cause of lower back pain and poor posture which has an affect on all the muscles in the body.  The philosophy behind Pilates is to retrain the mind and body connection to the deep core muscles, rather than the superficial Ab muscles alone, to stabilise the body during movemen.  Commonly referred to as "the Power house" your core is essential to use muscles more effectively.

A strong core is essential to avoid injury and re-dress postural imbalances that inevitably cause uneven wear and tear on joints and ligaments. That's why medical professionals often recommend  Pilates to decrease your recovery time after injury or fix muscular stain, back pain, or postural imbalances by increasing joint mobility, improving flexibility and body alignment. 
You can either join a regular class, or take private therapy sessions.  There are always modifications to the moves to suit any individual so you can be assured of getting the full benefits.
