What is Pilates?  Pilates is a form of exercise that is a blending of yoga, body sculpting and movement. It is based on deep breathing techniques, flowing precise movements, and mind-body synergy. This form of exercise is a functional, holistic approach to balancing all of the muscle groups within the body, thereby creating a stronger more uniform whole. The energy derived from within starts at the core of the body, specifically the abdominal, back and buttocks (the "powerhouse"), and is then disseminated outward to the extremities. This is truly where Pilates differs from more familiar forms of exercise where one would work their arms and legs, forgetting about the power that their core can generate. Pilates leave the body leaner and stronger while making it more flexible. Those who practice Pilates will look as though they have lost 10 pounds (even if they haven't), have a longer stronger spine, and will feel a sense of freedom of movement in and outside the gym as a result of their increased flexibility.

Those who benefit from Pilates - The fit, dancers, elderly, women who have had children, those with back problems, degenerative disc problems, asthma or other breathing difficulties, fibromyalsia, those who need a non-impact form of exercise, and those who want the strength without the bulk - in short, just about everyone!
