Pilates is a physical fitness system originally developed in the early 20th century as a rehabilitation program for prisoners of war by Joseph Pilates. His “Pilates Method” was later found to be beneficial for anyone seeking a higher level of fitness. Using a combination of spinal awareness, proper breathing, strength and flexibility, the Pilates Method conditions ‘core’ muscles: the abdominals, back and buttocks with an emphasis on healthy spinal and pelvic alignment. The benefits include better posture, toned stomach and buttocks, improved coordination and balance as well as increased energy levels.
Contributing to the ongoing success and popularity of Pilates today is its ability to be modified for a large range of people with different skill and fitness levels. Each exercise has been developed with modifications to make it safe and challenging for almost anyone.
Our mat Pilates classes are taught at a basic level with progressions offered for more advanced students to provide a dynamic core focused workout suitable for all levels of experience.
