Pilates is a wonderfully efficient workout that facilitates strength, flexibility, and ideal posture.  The apparatus that Joseph Pilates invented brilliantly challenges your body while keeping it in healthy alignment. The reformer works with springs and a moving carriage to create different levels of resistance for each movement. The cadillac or tower provides more stability to learn some of the fundamentals of the Pilates work on a flat non-mobile surface. The barrels help to open up the middle back and the hips where we are usually the tightest from sitting in a chair throughout the day. The chairs challenge our balance in some of the more advanced work and help improve our knee and foot alignment on a more basic level. Throughout each private Pilates session, you will experience the various apparatus for a well-rounded workout.

One of the first concepts we teach a beginner Pilates student is to initiate each movement from the "powerhouse" which is comprised of the abdominals, back muscles, and buttock muscles. Learning to work from the "powerhouse" will carry through to your everyday life which requires lifting heavy objects, climbing stairs, and maintaining upright posture without straining the back.

One of the many great things about the Pilates workout is that it's great for everyone regardless of age, gender, physical ability, or injury. With hundreds of exercises that progress from beginner to advanced, Pilates will continuously challenge your mind and body.  Joseph Pilates said in 10 sessions you'll feel better, in 20 sessions you'll look better, and in 30 you'll have a new body. The best investment you can make is in your physical well being and good health.
