What Is Pilates?



Developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates, today it is the not-so-best-kept fitness secret of dancers, athletes, actors, supermodels and other elite performers. The Pilates method is a comprehensive set of principles and movements designed to dramatically improve strength, flexibility, posture and coordination. It combines awareness of the spine, proper breathing, strength and flexibility training to achieve slimmer, longer, stronger muscles without building bulk.


Each class works the entire body, but with an emphasis on strengthening your core muscles – your abdomen, lower back and buttocks. As these muscles become stronger you’ll find your posture will improve, in turn relieving lower back pain and muscular tension. It’s perfect for people who spend their day at a desk.

 

Who can do Pilates?


As a non-impact workout, Pilates is suitable for everyone, from the first timer to someone with chronic back-pain. Like yoga, it’s done as “active meditation”, developing breathing technique, concentration and control. However, you must contact us if you have any medical concerns or injuries prior to doing any class
