What Is Pilates?

Pilates is a type of exercise and body conditioning established by Joseph Pilates in the early twentieth century to help dancers recover from injuries.

The Pilates method is guided by principles like concentration on each movement, utilisation of the abdominal and low back muscles, precise, flowing movement patterns, and steady and controlled breathing. Pilates exercises can be performed on specifically built devices, such as a bed-like structure known as a reformer or on a mat or blanket, depending on the activity.

Pilates focuses on your core and muscular tone rather than muscle growth. While most people assume your abdomen to be your body's core, it extends far more.

Our Online Pilates Classes In Edinburgh Is Perfect For Everyone!

You might wonder if Pilates is suitable for everyone, and fortunately, YES! Here at La Dolce Studio, we love helping everyone, regardless of age, gender, state, or skill.


Pilates For Kids

Inactivity and an unhealthy lifestyle in kids can creep into adulthood, resulting in various health concerns and negative habits. Luckily, Pilates is an excellent method to stay active and fit with minimal risks and dangers.

Pilates exercises for children are an effective way to introduce them to physical fitness early. Kids Pilates aims to improve core strength, posture, spinal alignment, core muscles, and mental wellness in children as they grow. It is a fun and safe technique to keep your children from establishing bad health habits.

Pilates For Pregnant Women

During pregnancy, the diaphragmatic breathing style of Pilates helps the lady prepare for delivery. By developing the flexibility and strength of the pelvic floor and trunk muscles, the Pilates technique prepares the woman for labour.

Regardless of whether you are new to the method, numerous possibilities are available due to its wide variety of workouts.

La Dolce Studio provides various Pilates services, from virtual to one-on-one studio sessions, to assist you in your pregnancy journey. You can be confident that you will receive all of the benefits Pilates offers when you work with us. Learn more about our Pilates for pregnancy HERE.

Pilates For Afterbirth Recovery

Moms must keep a healthy lifestyle while pregnant. This allows them to be ready for labour and delivery. Physical activity, on the other hand, should not stop after birth. Moms should exercise after childbirth to help them recover from labour if they give birth vaginally, to strengthen and tone their muscles, ensure pelvic health, and raise their energy levels.

Many mothers are eager to regain their pre-pregnancy weight after giving birth. However, they are hampered by time limits and difficulty selecting the ideal workout while catering for the new addition to the family.

Pilates, fortunately, is the easiest and safest exercise for you. It will gradually return you to a more active lifestyle and aid in developing your inner core muscles after pregnancy.

Pilates For Seniors

Many seniors notice that as they become older, their flexibility, endurance, and balance deteriorate.

In most rookie Pilates scenarios, these circumstances are bearable and will improve as Pilates is frequently practised.

Our experts in La Dolce Studio help senior students keep track of their level of exertion while taking steps to avoid falling or overstretching during lessons. With our online classes, you can start Pilates whenever and wherever you want, regardless of your age, physical condition, or level of expertise.

Here are some of the clients we're training, so if anything you're looking for isn't on the list, you can still join! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call us.


Benefits Of Pilates You Don't Want To Sleep On

Pilates is based on slow, controlled movements, yet the fitness and health benefits are amplified. Whatever method you use to get your Pilates fix, keep reading for six fantastic results. Then book an online session with us asap!


Helps In Toning Muscles

We frequently hear new customers say they want "toned muscles" from Pilates, but what does that mean precisely? It is derived from the concept of "muscle tone," which many scientists still question. Essentially, "muscle tone" is the amount of tension or contraction a muscle has at any one time, whether during a Pilates session or throughout the day during normal everyday activities and rest. 

Neuromuscular connections (how your brain tells your muscles to fire) influence muscle tone, and muscle tone influences posture (not to mention keeping your body upright). Muscles with a lot of "tone" look to be more defined as well.

When we do Pilates, our brains continually send messages to our muscles, causing them to fire during various motions and increase their tone. The more one exercises regularly, the more toned their muscles will be at any one time.

Supports Mental Health

A research of 63 overweight or obese participants found that doing one-hour Pilates classes three times a week for eight weeks relived anxiety and depression, and enhanced quality of life. Low-intensity workouts like Pilates have also been proven to relieve stress.

Gets You In Shape

Pilates can help you burn calories (and hence lose weight), but its benefits extend far beyond weight loss and should be part of your daily workout routine.

While Pilates focuses on the core, every movement works every muscle in your body. Every exercise improves your strength, flexibility, and mental control over your body. So, you can surely become in shape with Pilates.

Improve Breathing

Pilates motions promote body mobility, essential for good and efficient air exchange.

Stretching activities help to extend your muscles and improve your flexibility. Aerobic activities involve moving vast muscle groups at a steady, regular tempo. This sort of exercise strengthens your heart and lungs while increasing their endurance. This improves your breathing by allowing your body to use oxygen more efficiently.

Additionally, Pilates movements are recommended with a natural breathing pattern that encourages breathing broad and full to the sides of the ribcage. This is known as "lateral" or "intercostal" breathing because it encourages you to use your ribcage and respiratory muscles fully. To cope with greater physical demands, they must be exercised like any other muscle. As you exhale, you should empty your lungs and allow the relaxation of the muscles and ribcage.


Fixes Your Posture

Since childhood, we've been told to stand up straight and maintain excellent posture. It's not simple, and as quickly as we can modify our posture to be 'up tall,' we've sagged, slouched, or stooped back into our previous position and habits.

Luckily, Pilates can be beneficial for low and mid back pain and chronic neck pain because of this optimal length-tension ratio. Pilates-based training has been demonstrated to improve habitual posture by increasing spinal, scapular, and joint flexibility and strengthening shoulder, lower back, and abdominal musculature.

According to some research, physically active adults have a lower risk of developing kyphosis (an exaggerated forward thoracic curvature - leaned forward) than sedentary people. Exercises that oppose extension and those that involve many muscle groups help reduce deformity or postpone the deforming process, hence assisting in the preservation of an 'excellent' posture. The Pilates approach is beneficial in reinforcing efficient movement patterns and strengthening this situation.

Improves Flexibility

While yoga is widely recognised as the best approach to increasing flexibility, Pilates can be more useful for some people. Pilates emphasises movements when stretching rather than static or immobile stretches. This implies that the muscles are warm when you stretch, allowing you to extend further with minimal discomfort.

The more flexible you are, the less muscle strain you will have to deal with. You'll also benefit from improved blood circulation because blood can move more easily around a body that isn't rigid or trapped in one posture most of the time.

When choosing a studio, most people check the credibility of instructors. Fortunately, our professional instructors are attentive, helpful, and friendly here at La Dolce Studio.

As mentioned, Pilates is for everyone-- but not all Pilates techniques are suitable for everyone. Here at La Dolce Studio, we greatly understand how everyone has different forms and needs. For instance, not all Pilates exercises are suitable for pregnant women. From that, our experts will modify each exercise carefully to help moms reap all the benefits of Pilates safely.

  • Can osteopathy treat my recurring migraine?
    Various factors can cause migraines. Through osteopathy, we can identify the root cause of your migraine and resolve it. Osteopathy relieves muscular spasms and stress in the body by using hands-on therapy. It will facilitate the body's natural healing process to allow improved mobility and enhanced drainage of bodily fluids for your migraine to be gone for good.
  • How many sessions do I need to get treated?
    The number of sessions you need to get fully treated varies depending on your body’s condition. It can also vary depending on how cooperative you are in getting the treatment done right. In short, there is no general number of sessions that we can give for everyone since treatment of this kind must be customised to each client.
