Stay healthy & challenge yourself with Pilates!
Pilates is an exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility, and improve overall health. Pilates focuses on whole muscle groups rather than individual muscles and works well for a wide range of people. Athletes and dancers love pilates for overall conditioning; prenatal and postnatal women can benefit from the noncompetitive nature of pilates classes; seniors practicing pilates can improve their flexibility and stability; and people at various stages of physical rehabilitation will benefit from pilates.
Regular Pilates exercise classes build a strong core, increase strength, and improve flexibility and stability. Because it concentrates on individual movements, proper breathing and personalized modifications, Pilates often results in dramatic improvement in overall conditioning, decrease in aches and pains, and improved flexibility and control of movement. It is incorporated into athletes’ training and is often used for therapy for ongoing pain or weakness used associated with injury or aging. Many regular Pilates clients swear that it improves posture, stability, sense of awareness, and control over body movements – allowing a more active and engaged lifestyle while avoiding risk of injury.
Reformer pilates is a low-impact workout that is comprised of a series of core exercises that help improve muscle tone, strength, stability and mobility. This workout is great for anyone recovering from an injury or those looking to improve core movements and isolate more muscles than what is done in pilates mat classes.
Tower Pilates makes seated and standing exercises easier while providing the legs, arms, and torso to work directly with the springs.
Chair Pilates is a great apparatus to use to improve sports and daily performance. It's great in improving support in sports that require upper body strength and mobility like tennis and golf. It's fun, challenging, and a great core, and full body workout.
