The benefits of pilates after
10 sessions

Practice Pilates at The Pilates Centre in Coventry and you will definitely begin to feel a real difference.


Remember though, it is not a quick-fix programme, but after an initial 10 sessions:


  • You will probably feel better about yourself than you have in long while.

  • Your posture will improve - you'll be standing taller and your abdominal muscles will be held in better.


  • You will breathe better, which will improve your circulation, your metabolism and your skin tone.


  • You will discover which parts of your body are weakest, and which parts need to become more flexible. Whichever part of your body needs most work; that's where you'll feel it first


  • You will find your centre, and learn how to better stabilise your  body. Your abdominal muscles will also start to firm up, even if you can't see it yet.


  • You will also learn how to stabilise your shoulders and lengthen the back of the neck so that years of neck and shoulder tension can begin to ease, and your shoulder and arm movements can improve.


  • As you lubricate your joints and stretch out your muscles you will generally feel less stiff.


  • The combination of increased flexibility and core stability means you will begin to move with greater ease

And that's just the start...
