What is Pilates

Pilates is a rigorous workout focusing on the core region of the body. It results in long and strong muscles and an overall awareness. With detailed cues from an instructor, you become aware of the deep muscles that are not generally used. Pilates also corrects structural imbalances, thus making it beneficial to everyday movement.

Over a committed period of time, Pilates can change the shape of the body and improve posture. The workout consists of a series of exercises using specialized equipment as well as mat work. Pilates can also be used for rehabilitation and prevention of injuries.

When executed correctly Pilates:

• Corrects postural problems

• Increases core strength/stability

• Creates freedom of movement

• Enhances balance, strength, and flexibility

• Heightens body awareness  

• Compliments other methods of exercises/sports performance

• Improves coordination and circulation

• Prevents injuries

• Develops longer & leaner muscles

• Flattens, tones and strengthen the abdominal area
