The Pilates Base

Situated in the Sports Medicine Centre at the Morningside Clinic in Sandton, "The Pilates Base" studio offers a choice of Individual, duo, trio and group sessions.

Pilates is the ideal form of physical movement to develop strength, flexibility and control. Due to its 'low impact' nature, Pilates classes can be attended a number of times per week without concern of injury or overtraining.

Through its focus on postural correction and eccentric movement, Pilates is the best way to compliment cardio-vascular and/or weights based training.

Renowned as an effective way to sculpt, tone and condition the body, Pilates is the exercise method of choice for a number of celebrities. Further to this, many professional sports men and women regularly attend classes to assist in developing and maintaining strength and control.

Business men and women attend for the benefits mentioned above as well as that of composure, developed through the prerequisite breathing which is used to choreograph every movement.

An increasing number of Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and Doctors across the medical spectrum advise patients to attend Pilates because of its ability to increase core strength and improve the mind-body connection.

Regular Pilates training can offer:

  • Flexibility
  • Strength
  • Composure
  • Postural Correction
  • Mobility
  • Control
  • Improved Focus
  • Pain Relief
  • Injury Prevention
  • Post-operative Strengthening
  • Workout Satisfaction
