WHAT IS PILATES?
The Pilates training system is a movement practice focusing on proper joint alignment and biomechanical function. It emphasizes flexibility, spinal elongation, and core muscle strength. Specially designed spring resistance-based equipment or specialized mat exercises develop core and full body strength. Emphases build a strong, supported, yet supple spine. Gradually the entire body is challenged to connect to this strength. Thus, the entire body becomes stronger and more integrated.
Through your Pilates practice you will achieve a sharpened focus, heightened coordination and balance, improved posture and alignment, and lengthened and strengthened muscles.
