Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates.
The Pilates system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced or to any other level, and also in terms of the instructor and practitioner’s specific goals and/or limitations.
Strength – Pilates exercises build strength in the entire body.
Endurance – Intensity can be increased over time as the body adapts itself to the exercises.
Flexibility – Over time noticeable improvement in flexibility occurs.
Breathing – Improved breathing efficiency.
Using the basic principles of the Pilates method to streamline your body, focus your mind with classic exercises.
Expect to tone your abdominal, strengthen your back, hips and legs and enhance your alignment and balance.
When used properly, can facilitate a more dynamic exercise experience.
Props such as flex bands, fitness circles and rollers all add another dimension to this program.
Private, one on one and semi private small group classes are an ideal way to personalize and concentrate on the finer techniques of your Pilates training.
The major benefit of private sessions is the individual attention that can be provided. This allows for your teacher to design a program specifically for your needs and for training at a time that suits you.
More advanced props and equipment such as the Pilates Cadillac can also be used during these classes.
