What is Pilates?

Named after its founder Joseph Pilates, Pilates was developed throughout the early twentieth century. In recent years it has become refined and modified as is now one of the fastest growing exercise techniques in the world. Despite the changes and modifications,  the 6 original principles of  centering, breathing, concentration, precision, control and flowing movement remain.


Pilates exercises use slow and controlled movements to activate the deep postural muscles in the abdomen and spine which support spinal alignment and posture. Pilates promotes core stability within in a range of physical movements that are designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body using a low impact approach.


Pilates is an excellent way for someone, who may find more vigorous forms of exercise difficult, to strengthen and maintain/improve fitness levels. It can also be enjoyed by people of any age and any ability.


At Synergy our Physiotherapists often use Pilates based exercises as part of their treatment/rehabilitation of an individual. Pilates often plays an important role in the prevention of injury. It is widely used throughout the sports and dance worlds

I contacted Synergy following surgery to remove a brain tumour that had left me with a weakness in my left leg and no movement at all in my left foot. Over 2/3 months following the exercise plan designed for me, the improvement and range of movement I've achieved has been beyond all of my expectations. I loved the fact that the exercises could be easily incorporated into my every day life and even included some elements of Wii Fit :) I would highly recommend Synergy to anyone needing neuro physio.
