What is Pilates?

The Pilates Method is a system of over 500 exercises that was developed by Joseph Pilates nearly a century ago.  All of the exercises are performed on a simple mat or on specially designed equipment and are done with a focus on the “core" - which includes the muscles of the abdominals, back, pelvis, hips, and shoulders.  Joseph Pilates believed that when the core is functioning fully, the rest of the body will be able to move with ease and grace, free from stress or strain on the muscles and joints.

Pilates builds strength from the inside out, returning balance to the body and bringing it into correct spinal and pelvic alignment. It will reshape your body - making you more toned, leaner, and longer. Pilates will also improve your posture, achieving a perfect balance between strength and flexibility.  It is also a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension as well as areas of chronic pain or discomfort.

This method of exercise works for everyone, regardless of age or condition.

Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs.  It teaches body awareness, mental focus and concentration, and encourages proper alignment and easy, graceful movement.
