First created by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century the Pilates Method is essentially a mind-body centring technique that emphasises the importance of beginning movement from a central CORE of stability.
The overall aims of the APPI Pilates Method are:
- to develop the deep, postural CORE muscles that support the spine throughout posture movement,
- to enhance normal movement patterns
- and to improve overall body alignment.
The final result is the creation of a body that is more efficient in daily activities and less prone to future pains and injuries.
The APPI Pilates Method combines all that we know scientifically with the more traditional Pilates focus on training fluid movement.
This method will help you to develop better posture, a strong foundation to support your back and a long, lean muscular system which combines strength with flexibility.
