What is Pilates?
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1940s. Formally known as “Contrology,” the Pilates’ method is based on the following principles: Control, concentration, centering, precision, breathing, alignment, flow, and integration. By incorporating and practicing each of Pilates’ principles, clients will experience an overall improvement in their mind, body, and spirit.
What should I wear?
Fitted clothing is preferred, as this will allow us to better evaluate your posture.
How many times per week should I do Pilates?
Joseph Pilates recommended clients attend sessions two times per week. However, even if you attend just one session per week, you will see results.
Will Pilates help me lose weight?
Pilates exercise will increase muscle mass, thus increasing your metabolism. Attending Pilates sessions alongside a balanced diet will assist the client in losing body fat. Pilates will also assist the client in developing muscle memory through the exercise program designed for you, thus improving your posture and overall appearance.
