It is a physical discipline that involves a variety of principles that were devised by instructors using Joseph Pilates’ original concepts, which he called “Contrology.” Tiaki Pilates is a low-impact but effective form of weight bearing exercise that involves strengthening and lengthening muscles.

Exercising during pregnancy is very important. For your overall health and well being as well as your baby. Some forms of exercise can be harmful during pregnancy as it places extra stress on the pelvic floor – and may cause problems such as leakage or prolapse. High impact, high load classes are not always appropriate.
Post Natal Pilates
Pelvic Safe Pilates – for Post Natal Women. We all know that exercise is important for health and well being, but there are certain times in your life when you need to be more careful. Almost every exercise you do affects your pelvic floor. Some exercise is harmful during the post natal period as it places extra stress on the pelvic floor – and may cause problems such as leakage or prolapse.
Pilates for Menopause
Pelvic Safe Pilates – for Menopause. As we progress through life, our body is challenged in different ways. Menopause is no different. As women age, exercise becomes even more crucial for maintaining health and movement.Exercise not only improves your physical and mental health, but it reduces your risk of chronic disease. During menopause a drop in oestrogen means the risk of developing osteoporosis is significantly greater.This drop in oestrogen can also result in achy joints.
