Pilates is a sequence of exercises developed and practiced to simultaneously stretch, strengthen, tone and align the body, while eliminating excess tension and strain on the joints. Workouts are performed on specialized, spring-based resistance equipment which encourages core strength and won't bulk muscles. All sessions focus on the quality, not the quantity of the exercise. It is the mind-body connection that truly makes Pilates unique.
Pilates is suitable for all ages and most physical conditions regardless of level of fitness.
