If you're looking to undertake a programme in Pilates then look no further. I spent two years in Windsor with Powmax Pilates studying the fine art of Pilates and all the wonderful things it can offer to your body. I have completed my Diploma in not only Mat Pilates, but also Reformer Pilates, use of the Tower and Bench, Wunda Chair and Small Equipment.

It is a bespoke space dedicated solely to personal training and small group sessions providing you with somewhere quiet, professional and dedicated to all principles of Pilates and wellbeing.
What is Pilates?
Pilates is a low-impact body conditioning routine that specifically focuses on strengthening your deep stabilising muscles "the core" – that means the lower back, deep abdominal and pelvic floor. When taught correctly by qualified trainers, Pilates can help to improve balance, muscle-strength, flexibility, joint mobility and posture, and can act to relieve stress and tension. Pilates was created in the early 1890s by German-born Joseph Pilates. It incorporates elements of yoga, gymnastics, self-defence and dance. Today Pilates is widely recognised by the medical and sporting world as a means to facilitate and maximise health and fitness. Whether the Pilates exercises are performed on the Mats, with small equipment such as bands and balls or on our specialised equipment such as a reformer or wunda chair the concept remains the same; - you engage your core muscles at a low level and maintain good body alignment, whilst performing any sequence of Pilates exercises. The quality of movement is valued over quantity of repetitions and proper breathing is essential in helping you execute movements with maximum power and efficiency
Mat Pilates is a fantastic starting point for those new to Pilates and wanting to benefit from all that pilates has to offer. From the very first session you will be working towards improving your posture, developing strength in your deep stabilising muscles (core) and greater flexibility and mobility of your joints.
