Pilates: What is Pilates?

Founded by Joseph Pilates. Pilates is a training system that uses specially designed spring resistance-based equipment or specialized mat exercises to develop core and full body strength. The first emphasis is on building a strong, supported, yet supple spine. Gradually the entire body is challenged to connect into this strength, and the whole body becomes more integrated and stronger as a result.

Why Pilates:

- Promotes long, strong muscles Heightens coordination and balance

- Sharpens mental focus

- Alleviates poor posture and restores structural integrity through the application of alignment principles

- Restores proper body function and integration of all systems: muscular, skeletal, respiratory, circulatory, nervous

- Reduces and prevents pain and illness

- Heals and rehabilitates through a gentle and methodical approach to the body

- Complements and enhances any sport or activity
