Developed by German-born Joseph Pilates during the early part of the 20th century, the Pilates method of total body conditioning is a holistic approach to health, with the ultimate goal of complete coordination of body, mind & spirit. Pilates uses a system of stretching & strengthening exercises designed to lengthen the spine, correct muscular imbalances & establish efficient movement patterns which then carry into everyday life. Each exercise initiates from the centre – our ‘core’ – & flows outward to the extremities. Emphasis is on precise movement, of performing each exercise with proper technique & control, & on using breath to guide the movement.
Our classes cost $20 per mat pilates class or discounts are available using our multiple class pass option.
