What is Pilates

Pilates was developed by German born Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. Originally it was to help injured WWI soldiers. In the 20s he immigrated to the US, and the practice spread to help injured dancers recover and then to the general population. Today Pilates is practiced worldwide, by young and old, injured and healthy, regardless of body shape or condition.

Using controlled and precise movements, all exercises are based on using our core and working from the inside out. You will feel not only your abdominals wake up and fire up, but strengthen and tone your back muscles, glutes, legs and arms.  Easy on the joints, and easily adaptable to all body types and health situations – the entire body will receive an energizing treat.
