Why Pilates?

Pilates is a system of exercises performed on the mat or using apparatus (For more information on the apparatus, visit our Blog). It is designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture while also enhancing mental awareness. 


This method was developed by Joseph Pilates, a German physical trainer, who named his approach "Contrology." It was later renamed 'Pilates' after him. Pilates believed that health equated to happiness.


The benefits of regular Pilates practice are abundant, ranging from improved coordination, strength, and mobility to enhanced mental agility and an overall sense of well-being that can lead to a higher quality of life.


Pilates for your organisation


Research has also indicated that Pilates is an effective tool in the workplace for combating back pain and postural problems that often arise from prolonged periods of desk work. To discover how The Exhale Collective can assist your organisation on its wellness journey, click the link below.
