Practising modified Pilates movements while seated in a chair is a great way for older adults to get the health benefits of these exercises without needing to lie down.

Pre/Post Natal Pilates

Pre & Post Natal Pilates is a form of exercise tailored to prepare the mind & body before birth and to repair the body & focus the mind after birth.
