About Pilates Classes
Pilates is a form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.
One of the best things about the Pilates method is that it works so well for a wide range of people. Athletes and dancers love it, as do seniors, women rebounding from pregnancy, and people who are at various stages of physical rehabilitation
What it takes
What to Expect
Every Pilates session starts out with breathing and relaxation exercises designed to move the student into a more natural alignment. You will then be led through several exercises designed to loosen the back, neck, chest, hip joints and other body areas where muscle tension may need release. Only then do you begin the real exercises.
Every move is performed with perfect alignment, and is modified as necessary to ensure that the alignment is maintained throughout. In this manner, one’s body is strengthened into patterns of correct posture. Whenever one muscle is worked, its opposite muscle is also worked.
Pilates for Beginners
The well-choreographed exercises flow seamlessly from one to the next, and are adapted to the specific needs of your body. Move with great concentration, precision and dynamics without pause. Work your whole body, inside and out, from head to toe. Then work on areas specific to your personal objectives. Expect your session to fly by with varied movements, few repetitions and deep work, while moving to the ‘rhythm of your own body’.
