Workshop details

“In childhood, habits are easily formed-good and bad. Why not concentrate on the formation of only good habits and thus avoid the necessity later on in life of attempting to correct bad habits and submitting for them good habits…the proper development of body and mind, through the new science of “Contrology” is what must be taught the child”
Joseph Pilates

In his booklet “Your Health”, Joseph Pilates strongly sets forth his vision of teaching Pilates to children from a very young age. His dream was for his Method to be taught in all schools and colleges, educating children in breathing, posture, unrestricted natural exercise and even cleanliness!

The health of today’s children is increasingly compromised by a lack of physical activity and a culture of convenience. Teaching children Pilates offers a huge range of benefits, these include:

• Boosts fitness and increases concentration

• Improves dynamic posture and spinal alignment

• Increases strength and flexibility

• Improves sporting performance

• Increases awareness of the body as it changes and grows through childhood development

• Increases self-esteem, stamina, confidence and can help reduce anxiety and stress

• Improves sleep and ability to relax

• Helps social interaction and acceptance
