Pilates in the present day is a form of exercise to increase core strength, improve flexibility, breathing, posture and mindfulness. Pilates can be performed in a mat situation or on the studio equipment and at Mind Heart Body Centre we provide both sessions of Pilates in Sydney. From elite athletes and dancers to deconditioned rehabilitative clients, Pilates is able to enhance a person’s ease and ability to move and perform strenuous, as well as everyday tasks.
Present day Pilates derives from a group of exercises called ‘Contrology’ that was developed by Joseph Hubertus Pilates. In Joseph’s words: “Contrology is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit”. “Contrology is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work. You will develop muscular power with corresponding endurance, ability to perform arduous duties, to play strenuous games, to walk, run or travel long distances without undue body fatigue or mental strain”.
