1. Pilates trains the body as a whole, promoting balanced muscle development, and mind-body connection
Attention to core support and full-body fitness, including the breath and the mind, provide a level of integrative fitness that is hard to find elsewhere. Pilates is your chance to tune into your body and focus on restorative movements.
2. Improves posture
If you sit at a desk all day, you need Pilates in your routine. Pilates helps get your posture back to its former glory through focused alignment and elongation.
3. Develops core strength
A strong core means the frame of the body is supported allowing the rest of the body to move as it should (i.e. you can bring those shoulders away from your ears!)
4. Elongates your muscles
Pilates works the body eccentrically creating long, lean, strong muscles. Traditional exercise works the muscles the opposite way, concentrically.
5. Improves flexibility and range of motion in the joints
Pilates works to safely stretch your muscles (under the guidance of an instructor) to help prevent injury all while increasing your range of motion in important areas like the hips and shoulders. Win-win!
6. Pilates is for everyone
Whether you’re just starting to exercise, an elite athlete, pregnant, or rehabbing from an injury, Pilates is for you.
