What is Pilates?

Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor-mat or a variety of equipment.

It was developed in the 1920’s by Joseph Pilates who took the most effective elements from dance, yoga, martial arts, gymnastics, skiing, circus training and weight training, to develop a system of exercise which he believed promoted the perfect balance of strength and flexibility.

Zenergize Pilates in Sacriston, DurhamPilates is an excellent rehabilitation system for back, knees, hip, shoulders and repetitive stress injuries. It addresses the body as a whole, correcting the body’s asymmetries and chronic weaknesses to prevent re-injury and bring the body back into balance.

Your Instructor

Hi everyone, just a note to tell you how excited I am to be teaching at the Northern Integrative Health Practice, in Sacriston, and I am really looking forward to meeting you all.

If you already have a Zenergize class pass you can use this at Sacriston, just as you can use it at any of the other Zenergize classes and venues.

I thought it might be helpful for you to have an insight into who I am and my experience so far. My name is Denise Ord and I have 2 grown up children (whose ages shock me as I don’t feel old enough to have children that age), and 1 grandson.

Since joining my first ever class 15 years or so ago, I have been amazed at the difference it has made to me both mentally and physically.

My love for Pilates helped my recovery following a hysterectomy in 2007 and following this I decided to pursue a qualification to teach it. I have previously taught mat and reformer classes in well established North East studios and in local communities.

Not really slowing down as I had promised myself but something I do aim to do, one day. Probably a very similar lifestyle to many of you reading this. However by embracing the principles of Pilates on a daily basis I am convinced that this is the secret to remaining calm and in control, not to mention flexible and healthy to meet the daily challenges.

It has changed my life in such a positive way that I believe in utilising my passion for Pilates. I can also offer the opportunity for support in rehabilitation, improved health and wellbeing. I cannot wait for people to join me in class.
