Pilates is a unique system of stabilizing, strengthening and stretching exercises developed almost 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates. He created the first "Reformer" by attaching springs to hospital beds to help support, strengthen, and rehabilitate his patients during WWI. He brought Pilates to the U.S. in 1926 and began his lifelong work training dancers and athletes in New York City. Today, Pilates focuses on the lengthening of the spine and the strengthening of the core in people of all ages and abilities. We believe Pilates is for everyone and every body.
Whether you struggle with exercise, are recovering from injury, are an athlete, or want to add flexibility to a current workout routine, Pilates is for you! Pilates is an intelligent approach to fitness; it addresses your muscle firing patterns, joint range of motion, core support, and overall muscle strength. Learn how to change the way your back responds to day-to-day activities. Educate your neuromuscular system to respond with the appropriate, protective core muscle action. Improve your posture and move freely.
Learn how Pilates can help you to change your body composition with gentle yet powerful exercises. Effective weight loss is best done over time, and Pilates can be an important part of your journey by helping to strengthen muscles and challenge the body. Over time, you can change your body by converting fat to lean muscle mass for a toned appearance.
Muscle and fascia flexibility is an important part of muscle growth and overall health. Stretching of the muscles occurs throughout Pilates movements, and our exercises are designed to strengthen while lengthening your range of motion. Whole body flexibility helps to improve movement
For the casual or professional athlete, Pilates can be used to decrease chance of injury and improve performance and endurance. Programs are tailored to your particular issues and objectives. The results include an increase in active range of motion strength, improvements in muscle symmetry (i.e., balancing dominant muscles patterns), increased awareness of movement habits (proprioception), movement efficiency and power, extreme core strength and overall muscle endurance.
Feeling strong and healthy are key factors to aging. There are many fitness gimmicks and programs that do not address the issues of aging. We focus on functional issues, like spine degeneration, pelvic floor thinning, pulmonary function (deep diaphragmatic breathing), flexibility, and we also help you strengthen your everyday movements.
During pregnancy and postpartum, training the muscles of the pelvic floor and conditioning the deep layers of abdominal and back muscles will improve all aspects of recovery, including increasing core strength and decreasing lower back pain. Pilates helps to strengthen the spine for support during pregnancy, ease labor, and speed postpartum recovery and weight loss. (Note that you should always speak to your doctor before starting an exercise routine if you are pregnant)
