Our Pilates classes focus on building long, lean muscles to define tone, improve strength and increase flexibility. With consistent practice, the benefits of Pilates can be seen in all aspects of your life – from fitness to overall health and well-being.
Often, as a result of work, lifestyle or improper exercise technique, we can develop weaknesses of the postural muscles. Pilates training centers around creating a strong foundation – developing your core and emphasizing proper posture while working muscles in synergy to build symmetry and coordination for a more balanced and healthy body. A low-impact form of exercise, Pilates also reduces risk of injury by enhancing muscle elasticity and joint mobility for improved range of motion, circulation and posture -- and decreased pain in the back, neck and joints.
During a Pilates class, you will concentrate on body awareness, performing smooth, flowing movements and incorporating breathing techniques that you can use in every aspect of your life. With each class you will notice that your awareness of your body and how it moves increases – making you more efficient in your movements – and you will begin to experience a significant change in the way your body feels and looks.
Pilates training is an ideal form of exercise for beginners, those recovering from an injury or for serious athletes looking to take their training to the next level. It pairs incredibly well with other forms of exercise and can serve as an addition to your regular workout routine to keep your muscles flexible and improve your overall form.
