Pilates

The exercises created by Joseph Pilates focus on strengthening core muscles to improve posture and to increase flexibility. The techniques emphasize fluid movements through a full range of motion, which develop muscle strength and definition, without bulk. Control, precision and proper alignment is more important than the amount of resistance used or the number of repetitions. Pilates conditioning will improve balance, coordination and efficiency of movement, provide a greater sense of relaxation and increase the awareness of one's body as a whole.
