What is Pilates?

 

  "Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit."       - Joseph Pilates

 

Pilates – otherwise known as Contrology – was developed by Joseph Pilates over 100 years ago. He made it his life's work to strengthen and challenge his body to become the best that it could be in all aspects of his life, promoting optimum health.  

 

Leonardo's drawingJust as a proper solid foundation is essential to the stability and longevity of a house, developing your body into the solid foundation you need to move through life well is essential to your health and well being. Pilates helps you strengthen your core from the inside out which in turn creates a foundation of strength, flexibility and overall balance while training your body to move in a functional way.
