Pilates is an extraordinary conditioning system that works the entire body. Pilates has a myriad of benefits including flexibility, strength, balance, agility, core, mental well being and range of motion. The method helps people become more conscious of their posture, and the ways they move, sit, and stand.
Pilates is perfect for every audience because it is a non-impact, balanced technique that works for the very fit individual as well as for the injured or older person.
Joseph Pilates created this unique method of exercise more than 50 years ago, based on calisthenics, gymnastics, boxing, dance, and yoga, and influenced by his work with injured athletes and dancers. He focused on the body as a whole, developing a series of specific exercises to elongate and balance the muscles and turn the abdominal muscles, lower back and hips into the body’s “power-house”.
“You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions, and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.” ~ Joseph H. Pilates.
