The Pilates Method is more than a workout. It is a continuum of mindful movements that strengthen from the inside out and head to toe. Pilates focuses around six main principals: Centering, Control, Concentration, Precision, Breath and Flow. Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century, he originally called it Contrology. Eventually, he invented equipment that incorporated spring-loaded resistance to his exercise regimen. These movements and machines are constantly evolving and improving while keeping true to the core elements and philosophies that make the Pilates Method so powerful.
Practiced on a regular basis, Pilates has the power to transform, improve and aide in:
spinal decompression core strength
posture and alignment muscle tone
flexibility breath and endurance
bone and heart health mental clarity
body awareness balance
gait extracurricular activities
