What Is Pilates?
The Pilates Method, founded by Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920s, is based on a unique and proven philosophy of fitness that incorporates a precise and highly refined approach to teaching movement.
The method consists of floor exercises (called Mat work) and exercises on specialized Pilates equipment. The exercises are designed to uniformly strengthen the entire body, training several muscles at once so that no muscle group is over or under-trained. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured and better able to move efficiently.
Pilates is a safe, body-friendly exercise method that allows for various modifications to accommodate any type of condition. Quality of movement is emphasized over quantity to leave you energized and balanced after a session, not tired and sore.
