Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise.
It evolved from the principles of Joseph H. Pilates developed over 80 years ago and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. Pilates builds strength without excess bulk – creating a sleek, toned body and long, lean physique.
This safe, low-impact exercise system will help you look and feel your very best while teaching body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates also improves flexibility and agility, no matter your age or condition. It can even help alleviate
back pain. With Pilates you will achieve core strength, stability,
a mind-body connection and a healthier lifestyle.
