What is Pilates?
Pilates is a low-impact exercise method utilizing mat work and specialized equipment with springs to create resistance. The method enhances flexibility, strength, and body awareness through controlled movements coordinated with breath. Applying elements from yoga, ballet, and calisthenics, Pilates focuses on core and pelvic floor stability, proper breathing techniques, and mind-body awareness to create proper alignment and stability around the joints.
Through regular practice one can improve posture, body awareness, proprioception, coordination, increase functional movement, and reduce tension as more effective movement patterns are learned and integrated.
Each session is adapted to go at the pace and needs of the student. Those with general tension, back or hip pain, pelvic floor issues, hypermobility, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Osteoporosis and much more will benefit from this approach.
