Combines elements of flexibility, core strength, balance, and agility – all of which work to help you feel and perform your best!
Pilates is a system of exercise which emphasizes posture, body awareness, healthy movement patterns, and balance. Pilates functions to correct structural imbalances experienced by the body over time, gradually improving motor control and movement performance. Exercises are often performed in a supervised environment using a floor mat or various equipment, and can benefit just about anyone, regardless of age or condition.
Safe and refreshing, benefits of pilates include the development of stable core musculature which protects the spine from dysfunction, the creation of lean and flexible muscles through emphasis on strength throughout the joint range of motion, and balanced movement patterns which result in efficient motion and reduced incidence of injury.
