THE ROOM Abu Dhabi is offering an introductory Pilates course led by Master of Kinesiology, Ivana Obama, for four weeks starting 21 February.

Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body. It has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavour, but also as an important complement to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with firm, slender thighs and a flat abdomen. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement.

Pilates improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion, and can help alleviate back pain, as well as other ailments.

One precisely executed Pilates session is worth more than several hours at the gym— and afterwards you'll feel invigorated instead of exhausted.
