Why Pilates?

Pilates was developed in the 1920's by the legendary Joseph H. Pilates. The Pilates Method is a series of five hundred exercises performed on specially designed equipment that engages the mind and conditions the entire body. Pilates focuses on strengthening the core abdominal muscles and deep muscles that support the spine in order to build strength and stability from your center. We incorporate the Seven Principles of Pilates, which are: Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Breath, Flow and Alignment. There are many benefits of adding a regular practice of Pilates to your life, such as: restoring muscular imbalances, increasing functional strength and flexibility, lubricating and mobilizing joints, improving body alignment and posture, and heightening body control and awareness. Think taller, leaner, more limber, and more connected with your full mind-body potential!
