Pilates is an exercise method created by Joseph Pilates to strengthen
muscles, increase flexibility and coordination, and improve the mind
and body. The Pilates method will exercise the whole body and
impact any activity or movement. Pilates is performed on a mat and
on specialized equipment such as a chair, barrel, reformer, and Cadillac.
Pilates engages the mind while the entire body performs exercises. It
will strengthen the core, which is the powerhouse of the body and
improve balance, coordination, and flexibility. Pilates is paired with
our breathing, creating flow, form, and efficient movement patterns.
Anyone from 5 to 100 will enjoy the benefits from Pilates. Pilates is
used in many gyms, studios, rehabilitation clinics and hospitals to
improve overall health and wellness for clients recovering from an
injury or surgery to professional athletes.
