THE PILATES METHOD, developed by Joseph Pilates more than 70 years ago, improves core strength and flexibility, increases balance and stability, regenerates mind/body awareness, improves posture and circulation, and increases vitality.
In a series of controlled movements engaging your mind and body, the Pilates Method, performed on uniquely designed equipment or mats, works the deep musculature of the body to stabilize and support the spine. As a result, the spine elongates while muscles are toned and balanced increasing elasticity and flexibility of joints. This balance between strength and flexibility drastically reduces the potential for injury and improves the body’s postural alignment.
Pilates emphasizes flowing movements requiring the use of multiple muscle groups simultaneously. Controlled breathing and concentration are essential, making Pilates truly a workout for the body and the mind.
The Pilates Method spans all ages and fitness levels. It is a program you look forward to; it engages you and leaves you recharged with a sense of mental and and physical well-being.
