What is Pilates
Pilates is a low-impact exercise designed to strengthen muscles while stretching, improving postural alignment and balance.
It is a mixture of strengthening exercises with the many hundreds of moves concentrating on muscle development in the body, emphasising core strength.
This technique helps not only to improve general fitness but overall well-being.
How Pilates Benefits You for Real
It enhances balance
A study that assessed the effect of Pilates exercises on balance and falls concluded that Pilates training affected the participants' balance by improving LOS and reducing fall risk.
Strenghtens pelvic floor muscles
Pilates teaches you to activate your pelvic floor muscles before and during exercises. It also aids us in building up our pelvic floor by minimising strain.
Prevent Injuries in Atletes
Pilates helps prevent injuries by keeping the muscles in balance, strengthening your core and - perhaps most importantly - enhancing your body awareness, coordination and mental concentration.
Pilates helps to engage the deep core muscles - the abdominals, back and pelvic floor - which enables you to relax your shoulders and neck and alleviate pressure on your hips, legs and feet, improving your posture.
Diminishes stress on Businesspeople
Pilates decreases stress, helps you unwind and can lower your heart rate, cholesterol and blood pressure.
Patients with chronic low back pain showed significant improvement in pain relief and functional ability compared to patients who only performed usual or routine health care

Who will be your trainer
I am Danile Marcondes, I have been teaching Pilates in different studios since 2006. A couple of years later, I created The Authentic Pilates London.
After selling that business in 2017, I decided to take a couple of Sabbatical years,
which only ended in September 2021 due to the Pandemic!
Seeing the need to raise awareness about a healthier lifestyle, I started another
unique health boutique in SW London, the Physio Pilates Clinic.
