Pilates offers an excellent method of stress reduction and detoxification of the body, thereby restoring physical vitality. The focus on movement and breath encourages meditative states, blood is charged with oxygen and wastes associated with fatigue are purged from the body. To summarise, Joseph Pilates once said;
"A body freed from nervous tension and over fatigue is the ideal shelter for housing a well balanced mind that is always fully capable of sucessfully meeting all of the complex problems of modern living". Joseph Pilates.
