Pilates Method

Overview

Pilates is a method of body conditioning utilizing equipment and mat exercises. The Pilates Method is comprised of precise, controlled movements to lengthen and strengthen muscles of the entire body, focusing on the muscles of the back, buttocks, and abdomen (the Pilates "Powerhouse"). Every movement in Pilates requires awareness, control and concentration - some muscles are activated, some are consciously relaxed. Exercises are done with few repetitions, but with great deliberation.

Joseph Pilates created a rich and varied selection of motions, allowing for layers (and years) of ongoing discovery and learning. Grouping exercises for optimal effect and balancing each segment of activity ensures full body well-being, control, flexibility, balance, alignment, strength, and grace. Done properly a Pilates workout should leave the client feeling refreshed, energized and ready for his or her next workout. Learn more.
