The Pilates method is an exercise system involving movement and alignment principles that are important for both everyday life and athletic performance. The Pilates repertoire consists of a series of exercises designed to improve alignment, strength, flexibility, stability, mobility, and focus.
Most of the Pilates exercises begin with activation of the core, our powerhouse, while integrating our breath to improve focus and quality. This is a strong foundation to help support efficient execution of movement.
A well balanced Pilates regime has been used to relieve stress, improve posture and core strength, prevent injury, and recover from body aches and pains. For the athlete, Pilates can provide agility and increase your performance. If you have been injured, Pilates is a safe and effective tool for rehabilitation. And for the every day fitness enthusiast, it will be a well balanced addition to compliment your healthy, active lifestyle.
