What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of mindful movement, that emphasizes the body’s core (abdomen, obliques, glutes, inner thighs) to create more a more buoyant and resilient form. It focuses on what yogis and exercisers need, including strength, coordination, balance and flexibility.

Students of pilates often comment that they feel an or two inch taller after leaving class because of the emphasis on posture and alignment. With so much variation in the exercises and workout, you’ll never get bored in this practice, because no two pilates workouts are ever the same!
