What is Pilates?
Pilates can really make a difference in your health without taking a toll on your body.
A renewing mind-body workout with proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, and concentration on smooth, flowing movement, you become acutely in tune with your body. Develop a strong core – flat abdominals and a strong back by learning how to activate your “core” muscles, abdominals and back muscles.
During Pilates exercises you will gain long, lean muscles and flexibility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility can decrease possible injuries.
Learn how to move efficiently by training several muscle groups at once in smooth, continuous movements. By developing proper technique, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns of motion – invaluable for injury recovery, sports performance, good posture and optimal health.
It’s gentle yet challenging. Pilates is so safe, it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries. Pilates is also an extremely flexible exercise system. Modifications to the exercises allow for a range of difficulty ranging from beginning to advanced. Get the workout that best suits you now, and increase the intensity as your body conditioning improves.
