WHAT IS PILATES?

The Pilates Method focuses on the core postural muscles which help keep the body balanced and which are essential to providing support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and aim to strengthen the deep torso muscles.

Joseph H. Pilates, the legendary physical trainer, developed the Pilates Method in the 1920's as an exercise system that creates flexibility and strength for the entire body. He believed that physical and mental health were completely dependant upon one and other.

The Pilates Method is not just exercise; It is a series of very precise, controlled movements that fully engage the body and mind. These movements can either be performed on the ground or with various exercise apparatus which are designed to support and guide the body through its ultimate transformation. In our group classes we make use of such apparatus as Stability Balls, medicine balls, Pilates circles, Rollers, Thera-bands, etc.

Regardless of your current level of fitness - from sedentary office worker to fitness enthusiast - the Pilates Method can be your primary mode of body conditioning and injury prevention.
