Cyclist Jenny Kingsley always dismissed Pilates as a New Age gimmick. Then she broke her hip and was forced to reassess her prejudices

"Once your body is no longer scrunched up, your insides function more effectively. The breathing technique helps you breathe fully and wakes up your mind and body.

My tummy is flatter, I feel more supple, I instinctively sit up straight at my desk and back pain is less irksome."
