Pilates 101

Pilates is a mind-body exercise form that addresses the body as a whole unit, focusing on breathing, strengthening, stretching, balance and coordination.

All movement originates from the core stabilizing musculature of the pelvic and low back region. Developed during World War I, Joseph Pilates’ proven system can be practiced on a mat working against gravity, or using equipment and props to assist or challenge the person in other ways. Its versatility and low impact make it ideal for people seeking invigorating new workout routines as well as for those recovering from injuries or with compromised movement abilities due to disease, pain or chronic conditions.
