What is the Pilates Method? Is it effective and safe?
The Pilates Method can really make a difference in your health without taking a toll on your body. More conventional or traditional workouts are weight bearing and tend to build short, bulky muscles - the type most prone to injury. Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured. Pilates exercises train several muscle groups at once in smooth, continuous movements. By developing proper technique, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns of motion - invaluable for injury recovery, sports performance, good posture and optimal health. Our goal is to increase your quality of life through movement. At this studio, we are dedicated to improving the well-being of our clients through a progressive, comprehensive, and personalized Pilates experience. Our customized program begins with a postural & movement assessment, and utilizes all of our state-of-the-art equipment such as the Reformer, Tower, Spine Corrector, High Barrel, MVe chairs, and mat to help you reap the benefits of this effective movement system.
