What is Animalates?
Physical health and educational benefits
Animalates is a Physiologist-designed exercise programme derived fundamentally from Pilates but also Yoga, Aerobics and Dance, using elements and characters taken from the Animal Kingdom to make it appealing and engaging for children.
Our independently-produced, broadcast quality, interactive video content (Animalates TV) gets kids up on their feet and enjoying focused exercise - often without knowing they’re doing it - which helps fight against the increasing threat of obesity.
The use of Animalates within the education sector is designed not only to increase the amount of general exercise children receive during the school day, but also as a tool for teachers to help pupils prepare to learn more efficiently; when pupils need to either re-focus, energise or calm down.
Animalates classes and workshops are also delivered ‘live’ in school facilities, community halls and leisure clubs/gyms across the UK.
