Release Your Inner Strength!
As a fitness professional, I have taught just about every form of exercise, including dance and strength training. Of all the forms of exercise I've taught, Pilates is my favorite. I love Pilates because it helps condition, without punishing the body.
Pilates is a method of body conditioning that emphasizes the principles of control, centering, concentration, precision, breathing and fluid movement. A series of controlled movements, performed on the mat or on specifically designed apparati, Pilates uses the abdominals, lower back, thighs and buttocks as the body's "powerhouse" to stabilize and control movement targeting the deeper muscles in the body.
Pilates focuses on core stabilization, making the participant stronger from their physical center. Pilates is a safe, sensible and intelligent form of exercise that will help you look and feel your best, regardless of your age or condition.
Pilates was first developed in the 1920's by legendary trainer Joseph H. Pilates, and gained popularity among athletes and dancers due to the deep muscle strengthening and lengthening benefits. Although Pilates is not a new exercise concept, it is becoming one of the most popular exercise methods of our time. It is a gentler form of exercise that promotes muscle leanness and length rather than bulk. Pilates is safe and rehabilitative for people with back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, scoliosis, and limited flexibility. Pilates creates a strong sleek supple body, mind/body coordination that uplifts the spirit.
