Pilates and Rugby

Congratulations to the English rugby team in getting the the 2019 World Cup final! I watched the match and was as disappointed as the rest of the country when we lost to South Africa. Well done to them and isn’t Siya Kolisi an inspiration?

To reach the top in any sport, a rigorous training programme is needed and Pilates is often part of that training.

Pilates is the most effective way of promoting spinal health, and in particular, of developing the inner muscles of the core and neutral alignment of the spine. By promoting correct alignment of the spine and symmetry of the back this will also decrease the risk of general wear and tear on the spine and in particular on the intervertebral discs.
