Biomechanical exercises also help to improve functionality both in and out of the saddle, so it's not just for horse riders, it can be for everyone; weather you are an athlete, runner or gym bunny, or simply improving your activities of daily living. People from all walks of life can benefit from these Biomechanical exercises to help performance and flexibility and finally core stability.
The great thing about Pilates is that it can be adapted for everyone, whatever your level of fitness / experience or if you have back pain, arthritis or other general aches and pain.
Pilates can also provide a fantastic way of lifting your self-esteem and confidence and it is also a great stress reliever.
