Pilates

Pilates is a lifetime program that incorporates controlled movements and mindfulness to enhance strength, endurance, balance, flexibility, and posture. Whether you seek rehabilitation from an injury or improvement in athletic performance, Pilates is designed to help you meet your goals.

Pilates is a gentle program that provides a challenging yet safe workout. Modifications to each exercise may accommodate a specific body type or injury or adjust the level of muscular challenge.

Pilates has been known to assist with avoiding injuries from muscle imbalance. One of the most beneficial results from Pilates is more efficient use of the small spinal stabilizing muscles to all for development of overall muscular balance. It is then, that the larger trunk muscles (abs, extensors, and obliques) can more effectively control motion and improve performance. This reduces the change of repetitive strain and injury caused by imbalance, which is key to daily movement.
