What is Pilates?
 
The Pilates Method of body conditioning was developed over ninety years ago by Joseph H. Pilates to strengthen and tone the muscles. It improves posture, flexibility and balance. The routine itself has been carefully designed to increase strength flexibility and elongate muscles; the beautiful result is a lean, strong body type similar to that of a professional dancer. Pilates is referred to as the "science of control," and is a Non-Impact form of exercise that can be used by anyone.
 
 
Benefits of Pilates:
 
  • Develops a strong "Core" or body center, thus flattening /firming the abdominal area.
 
  • Helps build strength and lean muscles without the bulking effect; giving a longer and sleeker appearance.
 
  • Heightens body awareness and coordination.
 
  • Promotes flexibility and agility.
 
  • Teaches good posture and graceful movement.
 
  • Strengthens and stretches simultaneously, promoting the rehydration of connective tissues and joints while helping develop muscle mass and bone density, effectively reversing the effects of aging from the inside out.
 
  • Finish the workout feeling relaxed with increased energy.
