PILATES

Vera Torbolov, principal instructor and owner of Pilates Naturally, Oatley NSW

The “Pilates Method” is a set of principles, flowing movements and corrective exercises designed to improve control of the trunk muscles leading to good core stability and strength. This allows the limb muscles to work more effectively and efficiently. It also improves flexibility, balance and coordination, creating good posture.

Pilates will noticeably improve posture by stretching very tight, tense muscles and strengthening weak, underdeveloped muscles. This will help alleviate pain or discomfort in the lower back, hips, neck and shoulders. Pilates will literally change the way you move.

Pilates exercises are ideal for everyone from late teens, all through adult life into extreme old age. All levels of fitness are catered for at Pilates Naturally Studio.

Pilates Classes

Note: For best results, clients should participate in at least 2 -3 Pilates sessions per week to see results and to maintain good posture, strength and endurance.

Pilates Mat Sessions

Enjoy a full body balanced workout incorporating essential Pilates exercises using your own body as resistance. One of the big keys in a Pilates Mat workout is the mobilization of the spine. This includes extension, flexion, and rotation of the spine. Focus will also be on Shoulder & Hip mobility and stability.

The outcome? Better posture, stronger and more flexible muscles, greater energy, coordination, balance and an increased ability to cope with day-to-day stresses.

At Pilates Naturally it’s all about variety & functional training. Therefore we change our pilates repertoire every term. By adding different equipment such as hand weights, thera-bands, magic circles, chi balls, bosu, body bars and fit-balls to your fitness regime your body will continue to respond to each workout and you will continue to see results. Change is vital to your results and we want you to achieve a body that moves freely without pain or discomfort – a body that is strong, supple and toned.
