The method was created by Joseph Pilates in the early part of the century to help rehabilitate bed-ridden and injured soldiers. It went from very humble beginnings (Joseph Pilates rigged beds with springs so the bed-ridden could exercise) to a world-wide exercise phenomenon, suitable for all walks of life.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a unique system of strengthening and stretching the body, designed to improve one's posture and core strength by working with proper alignment, breathing, and placement.

  • The Core (the "cage" of strength encompassing the muscles in the lower abdominals, pelvis, low back, and diaphragm; also sometimes referred to as the "Powerhouse")
  • Breathing
  • Alignment
  • Form (mindful movements)
  • Balance
  • Stamina
  • Relaxation (deep breath work helps encourage calmness and centering while working)
  • Mind-Body Connection
  • Flow-(the exercises have a fluidity to them; as well as flowing one into the next)
