What is Pilates?

“Change happens through movement and
movement heals.” Joseph Pilates

Pilates is a low-impact method of training designed to engage the mind and body. The practice was created to help improve strength, mobility and posture with a particular focus on core postural muscles to improve your overall fitness and well-being.

What to expect?

Find your flow with Pilates

Pilates was created in the 1920’s by Joseph Pilates as a way to develop his
own fitness and health. He started using his method for rehabilitation of
injured war veterans, then set up a studio in New York and it began to gain
popularity especially among famous dancers.  Now it is taught worldwide and
its popularity continues to grow.

Pilates is a gentle but effective method of exercise which focuses on core
control, posture, breath, balance and precise movements of the spine and
body.  Pilates teaches you a new way to engage and control your body, this
enhances the connection between body and mind and will change the way you
think about and move your body.
