Welcome to White Tree Pilates, your route to a strong, healthy mind and body
When was the last time you felt truly comfortable with your body? Last week? Last year? When you were a child?
Many people lose that sense of connection with their bodies sometime during adolescence when poor postural habits start to set in. By adulthood, many of those habits have become normalised and our minds ‘forget’ what it was like to have good posture and movement.
Pilates is a proven method of exercise that helps to reconnect the mind and body. Through a series of gentle yet precise exercises Pilates targets the deep postural muscles that lie close to the joints helping to restore natural alignment and redress muscle imbalance.
Pilates continues to gain in popularity as more and more people realise the benefits. It is now practiced by a wide range of people from professional athletes and celebrities to office workers and new mums wanting to get back into shape.
It is a very safe form of exercise and is often recommended by the medical profession to assist in the recovery from a variety of illnesses and injuries. Pilates is especially beneficial to those suffering from back problems. Those who practice it on a regular basis notice not only huge improvements to their health and posture but also to their confidence levels and mood.

"As a busy working mum, I had not made time for exercise over recent years. Having experienced lower back pain, which was not helped by having a sedentary desk job, I decided to try pilates. I felt the benefits straight away. I feel energised after the classes and am already regaining core muscle strength. This in turn has reduced my back pain in a short space of time. Linda is perfect for a complete beginner - she explains the exercises well and the classes are small and friendly."
