Pilates is an exercise system designed to improve strength, posture, flexibility, and breath control. Using precise movements, Pilates focuses on activating small, internal muscle groups to achieve core strength and overall well-being. It can be practiced on a mat or on specialized equipment like the Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Barrel. Pilates can be customized to accommodate individual needs, making it an ideal exercise for those with injuries or physical limitations. A private lesson is highly recommended for new students before moving into a group class.
