Benefits of Pilates

Traditional methods of training and developing the body tend to produce short, bulky muscles - precisely the type of musculature most prone to injury. Pilates elongates the spine, increasing the elasticity of muscles and the flexibility of joints. This balance between strength and flexibility drastically reduces the potential for injury while enhancing overall body fitness levels and physical wellbeing.

Pilates History

The Pilates Method of body conditioning was developed by German Joseph Pilates more than 70 years ago. For many years, Pilates training remained a well-kept secret in the world of dance and the performing arts. In recent years the growing interest in "mind/body" exercise has brought Pilates concepts to the forefront of fitness training.

Pilates to the Core

The Pilates Method comprises more than 500 exercises, performed as a mat-based workout or using special resistance equipment developed by Joseph Pilates.
