Claire Young Pilates

Online Pilates Videos, Your workout, your way! (

I am passionate about Pilates and know from my own experience – and from those I have taught – what an incredibly positive effect it can have on both the mind and body.
Pilates is for everyone regardless of age, gender, size, ability or fitness level. It’s low impact and kind to your joints whilst giving you a refreshing mind-body workout, that will develop a strong core and toned flexible body, whilst decreasing stiffness, stress and back pain.
