Pilates is a form of exercise that emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core spine strength, flexibility, and awareness, to support efficient graceful movement. One of the best things about the Pilates method is that it works well for such a wide range of people. Athletes and dancers love it, as do seniors, women rebounding from pregnancy, and people at various stages of rehabilitation. The key to success in Pilates is the ability to exercise safely through modifications in the exercises, while still challenging the client. Pilates emphasizes core, spine and hip strength, which is the foundation for strength in both the arms and legs. Best of all, Pilates feels good!
