The Pilates Method, devised by Joseph Pilates in the mid 1920’s, was the first holistic
approach to exercise used in the West. Pilates is more than exercise – it is a process that will help develop core body strength, flexibility and balance through the use of breath, controlled movement, and mental focus. Some of the benefits of Pilates include • improved balance on and off the mat correct utilization of the deep abdominal/core muscles to help support the back• body awareness to improve posture• reduction of stress and tension – mentally as well as physically relief of back and joint stress • learning proper body mechanics so you will feel better and look better.
