What is Pilates?

Pilates is a method of body conditioning that was developed by Joseph Pilates over 80 years ago.  Originally called “The Art of Contrology” or ” The Art of Control,” Pilates is a series of over 500 exercises done on the mat as well on specialized pieces of equipment called reformers also designed by Joseph Pilates. Each exercise is performed while saying in tune with the Pilates Principles and the 5 Parts of the Mind.

Pilates instruction begins with building a strong “core” or as Pilates referred to it “powerhouse” using all of the muscles that surrounding the spine including the abdominal muscles, low back and buttocks. This whole body exercise program buil

ds long, lean muscles by adding flexibility moves to each of the strengthening exercises. For this reason, Pilates has attracted many dancers, but with the ease of movement anyone with or without a dance or athletic background can benefit from Pilates. Pilates can be done as your sole source of exercise or as a cross training effort to increase your strength and stamina. Pilates provides great exercise benefits , strengthening and lengthening your muscles as well as working to correct your posture.

In Pilates, exercises are done in a safe but challenging manner usually with less than 10 repetitions of each exercise. This allows you to concentrate fully on the movement and keeps the mind active by moving through a series of movements relatively quick. In the Pilates programming we always start with the basics and progress as you are ready.

Pilates is a great way to prevent injury, if done correctly. If done in an unsafe

manner or incorrectly, you may injure yourself, which is why it is important to take instruction from someone who is well trained and to communicate with them about how your body is feeling.

What to expect? The most important concept is to remember that you are in charge of your own body. You will be empowered to make decisions that will help to heal and correct you bodies natural movement patterns.

Doing Pilates may uncover weaknesses in your body. This may require extra strengthening to overcome your weakness. There are many exercises ind the Pilates system and no 2 bodies are alike, we will use a variety equipment and body positions to assure you get a great workout that benefits your body.
