Pilates Classes

As part of our Mind Body program at Re-Creation Malvern, we offer a range of Pilates classes including Mat Pilates, Power Pilates, and Pilates Barre fusion.   This popular full body exercise is a low-impact activity that focuses on flexibility, endurance, strength and posture rather than high intensity cardio.

Pilates exercises lengthen, strengthen and stretch all major muscle groups. It’s great for conditioning, engaging core strength and improving flexibility. Along with its controlled patterns of movements and abdominal muscle control, Pilates classes incorporate deep breathing and breath control.

At Re-Creation Malvern, we believe classes like Pilates are for everybody and everyone. We recommend you schedule a regular class as part of a balanced health and fitness regime. All our Pilates classes are lead by experienced and friendly instructors who will make you feel welcome.

What is Pilates?

Pilates was created in the 1920s by the physical trainer Joseph Pilates for the purpose of rehabilitation. Some of the first people treated by Pilates were soldiers returning from war and dancers to strengthen their bodies and heal their aches and pains.

Often compared to yoga, Pilates classes do share a few similarities such as a focus on mindful movement, breathing, core strength, flexibility and balance. However, Pilates is more focused on conditioning and doesn’t emphasise meditation and spirituality like yoga.
