Pilates at Oscailt
Pilates is one of the most thorough forms of exercise in the world. It dramatically improves posture, flexibility, balance, coordination and strength through slow, controlled movements and proper breathing.
Pilates is “mind-body exercise”: focusing the mind to perform the exercises correctly requires maximal concentration! Due to the mind-body link, progress is rapid and great results are felt and seen quickly both during the sessions and transferring into daily life.
Regular Pilates training creates a long, lean body; with toned, flat abdominals, ripped thighs and bum, and a strong back.
In 10 sessions, you will feel the difference. In twenty, you will see the difference. And in thirty, you’ll be on your way to having a whole new body. — Joseph Pilates
