Welcome to our Pilates Programs
Pilates is a physical fitness system that was developed in the early twentieth century by Joseph Pilates. Pilates was formed by Joe during the First World War with the intention to improve the rehabilitation program for casualties. During this period, Pilates was designed to aid injured soldiers in regaining their health by strengthening, stretching, and stabilizing key muscles.
Mat Pilates is done on the floor using an exercise or yoga mat, by employing controlled breathing during body weight resisted movement to stretch and strengthen the body, primarily the muscles of the core, which span from your hips to your shoulders.
You can expect overall slimming, greatly improved flexibility and increased mobility, even in just a short space of time. Alignment and postural correction will have you holding yourself differently, standing taller, sitting straighter and moving with better balance and coordination.
You will feel an inner strength and heightened body awareness as you become in tune with the subtleties of your individual needs. This newfound enlightenment will empower you to be able to train yourself with the best possible efficiency, using your time most effectively.
Our Pilates selection offers Pilates Mat Level One, Pilates Mat Level Two and Pilates Chair with Ring.
Pilates Mat Level One and Two only require an exercise or yoga mat for a safe and comfortable experience.
For the Pilates Chair with Ring – which is a whole-body routine, you will need a straight chair, with or without arms, in which you can sit with your feet flat on the floor, and a Pilates ring. The ring creates the resistance. You can make this routine gentle or challenging.
Pilates Mat Level One, teaches the basics. It walks you through step by step with thorough instructions. If you have been curious about the benefits of Pilates, here is your starting point.
Pilates Mat Level Two keeps to the fundamental Pilates principals as you are guided through exercises that are more challenging than level one.
The Pilates Chair with Ring Program offers a great workout that challenges your core balance while giving you a great upper and lower body workout as well. Using the ring adds a dimension of strength building to the routine. You can also buy the ring from our partner ThePilatesTherapist.com.
