Frequently Asked Questions
I have not exercised in a long time! Is Pilates or Yoga okay for me?

I have a really bad back and I've heard that both Pilates and Yoga could benefit me. Is this true? Which would be better for my back?
Pilates has a long standing tradition of being a saviour for bad backs. Pilates will teach you exercises that are safe for your sensitive back but will also help you develop the strength you need to have a healthier back.
