"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body." ~Joseph Pilates
Pilates is a form of muscular conditioning that focuses on the body’s core strength or ‘Powerhouse’ – the muscles closest to the spine, deepest to the rib cage and within the pelvic floor. By working the body from this core connection, Pilates brings the body into balance, increases overall strength, improves flexibility and promotes good posture. It is an efficient, sustainable and restorative workout. Pilates focuses on total mind-body integration encouraging practioners to be mindful of each move. Pilate’s founder, Joseph Pilates, asserted, “It is the mind that shapes the body.”
Pilates is perfect for adults of all ages and all levels of fitness. It can prevent injury and damage caused by everyday activities including other forms of exercise that can strain the body. Because less time is required, Pilates is an efficient way to develop and maintain one’s fitness routine, improving overall physical performance. The philosophy behind Pilates can be used in your daily life, leading to a lifetime of well-being.
