As Miranda Richardson sums it up so well, 'Pilates will help you to do whatever you have to in life. With its emphasis on structure and synchronising breath, with a fluid yet dynamic set of movements, the body and mind are made strong and flexible. There is an almost immediate sense of well-being. Whether you are singing "Aida", sitting at a desk all day or unloading shopping from your car, Pilates will benefit you.' Ultimate Pilates is a unique programme of exercises that will help you to condition your body and mind for ultimate fitness. This form of exercise is gentle, uncompetitive, relaxing, and also extremely effective. With an astounding 40 years' experience, Dreas Reyneke has developed a set of exercises from Pilates principles that improve posture, strengthen and tone the whole body and lift the spirits.

Here are just few comments from Dreas's students:'One of the finest teachers.' Viviana Durante, Principal Ballerina'Dreas has a deep understanding of how the body works.'
