Absolutely not! However, you are required to fill a Health Screening Form first. If you feel stiff, less mobile, or suffer from general aches and pains, Pilates is a great place to start your recovery. All beginner sessions are practised on the floor.
If you feel you're very fit and healthy, if you're active or part of a team, or if you work out on a regular basis, Pilates will fit perfectly with your busy lifestyle. It helps prevent injuries – particularly for hurlers, football and rugby players, runners, cyclists, golfers and others – making you feel leaner and stronger, through facilitation of your core muscles.
