Experience Real Pilates in Cannes

When going on holiday people are in general looking to have a relaxing time away from the pressures and stresses of their working lives. Cannes is a popular tourist destination in the beautiful French Riviera in the South of France where people can leave their worries behind them in the stunning surroundings of the Azure coast. Other than visiting the many luxurious shops and restaurants, further relaxation can be achieved by partaking in the activity of Pilates at a Pilates Studio in Cannes.

Since its inception in the early 20th century, Pilates has become a popular leisure activity and Real Pilates Cannes has the essence of the discipline at the centre of its programmes. As a physical fitness system that uses the mind to control the muscles, Pilates helps to keep the body balanced and focuses on engaging the mind with the body through a series of exercises that involve the whole body. The Pilates exercises are ideal for anyone of any age and by learning to move better the long-term benefits associated with Pilates can be felt in everyday life.

Real Pilates Cannes is situated near the world famous Croisette in the centre of the French city and is an ideal place to take Pilates lessons in Cannes. The fully equipped Pilates studio hosts Pilates lessons that are run by Linda de Haviland and her Romana’s Pilates certified instructors in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. There you will learn the basic principles of Pilates that focus around breathing, centring, concentration, control, precision and flow to help you improve your ability to move with strength, grace and ease.

Real Pilates Cannes teaches the True Pilates method which consists of the Romana’s Pilates exercises and philosophies that have been handed down through the generations by the founders of Pilates, Joseph and Clara Pilates themselves. The True Pilates method is different because it directly refers to the system of exercises originally developed by Joseph Pilates that has been proven over 80 years to be an effective system. Romana Kryzanowska, the world-renowned protégé of Joseph Pilates, is continuing his work and along with her daughter has taught the instructors at Real Pilates Cannes.

Real Pilates, will enable you to acquire complete control of your body and in turn acquire natural rhythm and coordination through the repetition of the exercises. This will then become part of your mental and subconscious activities as you build up your muscular power and endurance to make everyday activities less straining mentally and physically and help reduce your levels of fatigue.

By participating in Pilates lessons in Cannes you will learn to breathe correctly, develop your core strength and become aware of how to concentrate during activities with intense focus. Over time the precision and control that is taught in Pilates will become second nature and as you move through the flow of exercises your strength and stamina will develop. The attention to correct breathing, proper form and efficient movement patterns are skills that can be utilised in any situation to help decrease stress and promote good health and fitness by engaging your mind with your body.
