The Pilates method is an exercise system which focuses on improving core strength, flexibility and balance. It uses a series of controlled and systematic movements coupled with focused breathing to engage both the body and the mind. It is ideal for anyone wanting to correct bad postural habits, overcome back problems, improve athletic performance, or simply increase their general levels of fitness and wellbeing. Pilates can be practised by students of all abilities and benefits everyone.
At Embody we have a great team of friendly and experienced teachers with a range of classes for all levels, though if you’ve never done Pilates before you may want to consider joining one of our frequent beginners courses to learn the basics.
If you’d prefer a more personalised experience try our one-on-one sessions for the ultimate in individual instruction and customised exercises. One-on-one sessions are available for both mat-based Pilates and Reformer Pilates (which utilises specially-designed equipment to enhance support and resistance during training).
Classes are held in our beautiful light-filled Vauxhall studio located just minutes from the train, bus and underground station.
The Pilates method is all about improving core strength, flexibility, muscle tone, balance and body awareness. It’s ideal for anyone wanting to correct bad postural habits, overcome back problems, improve athletic performance or simply increase their general levels of fitness and wellbeing.
