There are over 500 exercises that incorporate six principles: breath, centering, concentration, control, precision, and flow. In the beginning, exercises are broken down into more isolated movements called‚ fundamentals. The goal of these smaller exercises is to help create awareness and control in each area of the body. As clients progress, they begin to integrate these fundamentals into more complex exercises.
The focus of Pilates is on quality of movement, rather than quantity so that no muscle group is overworked or neglected and the body is worked as a whole. The remarkable design of the equipment both challenges and supports the body as it learns to move more efficiently, powerfully, and fluidly. Because sessions are almost never exactly the same, the mind and body are continuously challenged.
Private and small group sessions are offered so that workouts can be tailored to each clients specific needs and goals.
