The one-on-one sessions are tailored to your individual needs and goals.
For everybody from an athlete to mother, Pilates will develop and enhance stamina, posture, alignment & core strength for elite performance to everyday activities. Specialized spring resistance-based equipment and mat exercises will be utilized to help you to better understand and connect with the principles of pilates including developing core strength, flexibility, breath, control, flow and precision of movement
The Pilates method uses specifically designed equipment and floor exercises to promote uniform development of the body. This allows weaker muscles to develop instead of the body continuously relying on the stronger muscles to do the work. Pilates focuses on the core muscles first, specifically stomach, butt and back, in a sense, working the muscles from the inside out. This achieves and maintains a balanced aligned body.
