Pilates improves your health and well being. Whether it be as an exercise class to keep you active, in physical therapy to rehabilitate an injury and/or faulty body alignment, or the meditative activity that keeps you connected and less stressed, pilates does it all.
Pilates, pronounced “Pi-lah-teez”, is an innovative form of fitness designed by Joseph Pilates over 85 years ago. Pilates uses springs as resistance for strength and flexibility training and is used by many professional athletes such as Jason Kidd and Tiger Woods.
The principals are based on postural alignment, breathing and strengthening while stretching leading to increased range of motion, optimal symmetry and coordination of the body and mind. A sound body and mind can house a spirit able to battle and recover from life’s struggles and be fully energized to enjoy life.
