Pilates Fitness

Pilates is a form of fitness training that strengthens, stretches, and conditions the core of the body. Adaptable for all ages and body types, Pilates training increases both stability and flexibility which helps improve posture, balance, and coordination. Keeping the core strong, limber, and aligned protects the back and neck from chronic pain and injury.

Pilates fitness exercises focus on the precision of our breathing to create a synchronized and dynamic flow between the breath and the musculoskeletal body while working out. Pilates mat class allows us to move with more power and natural fluidity. Increasing our strength and fluidity leads to improved posture in our everyday functional movement.

Pilates exercises reduce the risk of injuries, while increasing the longevity of our joints and musculoskeletal system. Building our core strength and flexibility lessens the wear and tear on the body that occurs when we exert ourselves using the incorrect muscles. Working out with a professional Pilates instructor teaches you correct body alignment so that you are safe while stretching, conditioning and strengthening.
