FAQs

Q: What exactly is the Pilates method?
A: Pilates (pi-LAH-teez) exercise, performed in the U.S. since the 1920’s, is named after it’s inventor, Joseph H. Pilates. The Method encompasses more than 500 controlled, precise movements designed to stretch and strengthen muscles without adding bulk and improve musculoskeletal function. The exercises require concentration and deep coordinated breaths- working body and mind. They focus on the body’s vital energy core (which is abdominal and lower back musculature) to build strength and agility in a balanced way. The exercises are performed on a padded floor mat or with special apparatus such as a Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Tower and Magic Circle. Discover the Method that helps you get in touch with your body, focus your mind and revitalize yourself. The spring resistance of the Pilates apparatus will create muscles that are strong, lean and well aligned.

Q: Is Pilates right for me?
