josephpilatesPilates is a series of flowing, dynamic, mindful exercises, developed by Joseph H. Pilates to strengthen and stretch the body as well as correct physiological imbalances. Joseph Pilates developed this system through a lifetime of study focused on both human and animal movement. It applies the principles of breathing, body centering, mental concentration, movement control, precision, and flow. The Pilates system consists of both mat work and the use of unique apparatuses which employ springs to provide both resistance and assistance.

In the words of Joseph Pilates, “The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. It develops the body uniformly, corrects posture, restores vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.”

“In 10 sessions, you will feel the difference. In 20, you will see the difference. And in 30, you’ll be on your way to having a whole new body.” – Joseph Pilates
