Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance.

It aims to strengthen the body in an even way, using controlled movement to improve general fitness and wellbeing.
