Pilates Lisburn

What is pilates?

Pilates is a unique form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates over 50 years ago, designed to strengthen the deep core muscles which give stability to the spine and so helps maintain a healthy back. Pilates is a mind and body technique requiring co-ordination of breath, movement and concentration on different body parts to perform precise smooth flowing movements.

What are the benefits of pilates?

This form of exercise creates a balanced, toned and flexible body. The muscles are worked safely with no impact, making it ideal for those with joint issues, it helps prevent the recurrence of low back and neck pain. Pilates improves posture thus reducing the tension and soreness held in the neck, shoulders and back and producing a feeling of relaxation and a sense of well being.

What our clients say about us

  • "I first attended Advance Physio with my daughter when she had a sports injury and I was impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. I signed up for their Pilates classes, and I’m still there - four years later! The classes are fun and friendly and I have regular physio appointments too. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else now."
