Kick-start your year with a pilates session, and we guarantee you won’t just stop at one. Doing pilates comes with tons of benefits. Here are just three reasons why you should sign up now.


Each pilates class consists of a careful blend of strength and flexibility training, which helps to build your body’s endurance and power. Not only do the classes build on your strength, they help to tone your muscles to give you a stronger and leaner physique as well.


Pilates also helps to improve your body posture and tone, as well as enhance your coordination and balance. If you have suffered from any injuries previously, doing pilates can help prevent them from recurring again.


Besides conditioning your body physically, pilates is also a time to give your mind a break from the stress you’re dealing with. After every session, you’ll leave feeling re-energised and ready to take on another busy day. From beginner to advance levels, or whether you’re looking for a private or group class, award-winning studio PowerMoves definitely has something for everyone.
