How can Pilates with Diane help you?

Article by Diane Clark 03.06.16

Pilates improves core strength which in turn will help your posture. It tones all parts of the body and is especially good for easing low level back pain. Not only does it work your body but as you are concentrating on the lateral breathing pattern and what movements you are doing it is also working your mind.

Many clients have said although they know they have worked out after a class they feel relaxed and stretched out too.

“I now have improved mobility in my shoulder” – Southam College Class Client

“Diane is an excellent tutor & the classes are very varied” – Ufton Class

“I like the feeling of wellbeing after the sessions..” – Client of 4 years


Heres exercise 2 of the Pilates with Diane Back Series :

– To mobilise the spine also strengthening the abdominals and shoulders

1. Position yourself on the mat with your hands under the shoulders and the knees under your hips. Ensure that there is space between the knees, and the back is flat (1)

2. Breathe navel towards spine – imagine you have a size tighter leggings on – Inhale to prepare.
