The Benefits of Pilates
A refreshing mind-body workout

Learn control of movement – Emphasize quality over quantity of movement for maximum efficiency; utilize proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment and smooth, continuous movement to re-train the body to move in a safer, more efficient manner.

Develop a strong core – The “Core” is your powerhouse. Focus on abdominals, back muscles, gluteals and thighs to develop a strong core.

Gain long, lean muscles and flexibility – Elongation, muscle balance and strength is the focus to improve flexibility and reduce injury.

Enjoy a low-impact…yet challenging workout – Many of the exercises are performed in reclining or seated positions, and most are low impact. Pilates is so safe, it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries. Modifications to the exercises allow for variable levels of strength and ability from beginning to advanced.
