Pilates is an exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and improve overall health.
The Pilates system includes exercises for every body part and applies to every type of activity.
Pilates focuses on engaging the mind to move the body. Each exercise is performed with attention to breath, proper form and efficient movement patterns.
Pilates strengthens the core, improves balance, increases coordination and decreases stress.
Exercises are low impact, relatively safe and appropriate for anyone from ages 10-100.
