Originally named Contrology, Pilates is a form of exercise that was created by Joseph Pilates over 80 years ago.

The Pilates exercises are either performed on a mat using your own body weight, or with unique equipment utilizing springs for resistance. Joseph developed his work throughout the course of his lifetime by studying anatomy and watching the natural movement patterns of babies and animals. This attention to the foundation of movement is a basis in Pilates. Every exercise is designed to reinforce awareness and proper movement patterns of the body.

The principles of Pilates focus on proper breathing, centering of the body mind and spirit, control, precision, and fluidity of movement. The method emphasizes working the muscles of the abdomen and back referred to as the core. Training the body to work from the core or center reinforces proper alignment and uniformly develops the muscles throughout.

Many clients notice after training that they feel better overall in their body as well as stronger and more aware of their own movement patterns. Being aware of how you move while going about your daily life whether driving your car, sitting at a computer, and even walking will allow you to be more efficient and even prevent injuries.
