The Pilates Method, originally called The Art of
Contrology, develops coordination of the body, mind and spirit which
increases strength and flexibility while building lean defined
muscles. The Pilates Method was developed in the 1920's by a
legendary physical trainer Joseph H. Pilates and consists of over 50
exercises using five major pieces of unique apparatus to develop the
body's balance, control, and strength. Each exercise is performed
with few repetitions, emphasizes precise movements and focus of the
mind. This enables you to experience a new awareness of my muscle
function and coordination.
Come experience a Pilates mat class and
explore the fundamentals of this popular exercise system.
