WHAT IS PILATES?
Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s, the method is designed to improve overall posture, strength, and flexibility. Pilates employs a series of fundamentals that involve precise and controlled movement with an emphasis on connecting your breath to your “powerhouse” or core. Mindfully connecting to the core will allow the limbs to work from a stabilized position, preventing injury caused by overcompensating for any weaknesses.
