Pilates exercises work for many reasons. The great attention to detail and form is a perfect way for a client to gain strength in the weaker or injured muscles and joints. Our exercises are gentle on the joints, so there is little worry of over stressing an already stressed body.
Not all Pilates studios or teachers are the same. See our question and answer section at the bottom of our about page...
Pilates also develops the smaller muscle groups, known as stabilizers, that work to support joints and bony structures.
Modifications to exercises are given to adapt to your individual needs.
Pilates builds a body awareness, it helps chronically weak and imbalanced muscles become equally strong. Pilates not only improves your body, but also helps with mindfulness and improves your concentration.
