The Pilates Method is a body conditioning system developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920's. Contemporary Pilates includes more than 500 exercises designed to uniformly strengthen the body and focus the mind.
- Pilates exercises are practiced on different apparatus to maximize results and prevent boredom.
- Pilates precise movements and mindful breathing teach body awareness.
- Spinal and pelvic stability improve coordination and balance.
- A strong powerhouse and core helps prevent injury and stress on the joints and spine.
"If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young."
