Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century, the Pilates Method is a powerful system of exercise and physical movement designed to bring the entire body to its optimal condition and balance. It strengthens, stretches, aligns and balances the body through the systematic practice of specific exercises, coupled with focused breathing. There are over 500 exercises, performed on the mat (floor) and on a variety of spring-loaded Pilates equipment. Pilates has proven itself invaluable for fitness, wellness, pain relief, sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.
Pilates works the whole body, strengthening the overall musculature and structure by developing the smaller, deeper muscle groups to support and balance large muscles and joints. The highly focused movements are coordinated from a strong, flexible core, including the abdominals and back muscles, and flow outward through the limbs. Movements are controlled with an emphasis on quality and precision rather than quantity and speed. There is minimal joint stress.
Pilates works deeply, using the principles of eccentric contraction to strengthen muscles while they stretch. The spring resistance of the equipment translates through the joints, muscles and connective tissue of the body, providing the long, lean muscle quality for which Pilates is known. All of this aids in the total conditioning of the body, helping to maximize strength, control and concentration of both mind and body.
Some of the benefits of Pilates:
- Improves strength, flexibility, balance and coordination

- Helps reduce chronic pain and rehabilitate injury
- Reduces tension and stress
- Improves posture
- Increases body awareness and mental focus
- Tones and builds long, lean muscles
