What is Pilates? An innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates. The Pilates Method dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. With a focus on core strength and stability, it builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can even help alleviate back pain. Professional dancers have known the benefits of Pilates for decades. Top athletes use it for strength, flexibility, and injury prevention. Hollywood celebrities and supermodels use it to maintain beautiful physiques.
A miracle? Not really. Developed from the rehabilitation techniques of Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a safe, sensible exercise system using a floor mat or equipment, that will help you look and feel your very best. No matter what your age or condition, it will work for you.
