Discover the Benefits of Pilates!
Concentrating on the core abdominal and back muscles, Pilates works all body muscle groups correctly. Proper breathing throughout the workout leaves you feeling refreshed and energized. As you learn the flowing motions of the Pilates method, you will experience a new sense of inner harmony.

The main difference between Pilates and other forms of exercise is that Pilates was created to increase the overall health and wellness of the student, rather than simply for aesthetic effect. Strength is built not only in the large muscle groups, but in the smaller supporting muscle groups as well, which results in more total fitness and longer-lasting strength and health. It can be formatted to fit in with any exercise or wellness goals- from weight loss to the rehabilitation of an injury, from day-to-day fitness to a much-needed increase in strength and flexibility- and is safe to practice at any age or level of experience.
Childhood bouts of asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever inspired Joseph Pilates to study anatomy and both Eastern and Western forms of exercise. He eventually designed apparatus customized to his own physiology. Pilates brought his conditioning method to the United States in the early 1920s.
Dancers/choreographers Martha Graham and George Balanchine and other performing artists in New York City discovered the benefits of the Pilates method in the 1950s. Athletes have come to depend on Pilates to keep them in competition shape and reduce the risk of injury. Because it provides an intense but low-impact workout, Pilates is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels and is one of today's fastest growing fitness trends.
