Pilates

  • Pilates is a unique method of physical and mental conditioning with an emphasis on efficient breathing, neuromuscular re-education, abdominal/trunk control, strength training, spinal alignment/stability, flexibility and body awareness.
  • It is based on the famous works of founder Joseph H. Pilates who originally named his method “Contrology”. The focus of his work was on lumbo-pelvic stability or what he called the “powerhouse”.
  • Specially designed Pilates equipment (invented by Joseph Pilates himself) is utilized to provide both assistance and resistance to enhance rehabilitation, post-rehabilitation, athletic performance, and person fitness.
