Using the classical method, We help clients improve their physical and mental well-being as well as their athletic goals through preserving the philosophy, teachings, exercises, and vitality of Joseph Pilates’ work.
Practiced faithfully, Pilates yields numerous benefits, from life-changing physical gains to empowering mental gains. Students of Pilates who attend regular sessions, notice a remarkable difference in how their bodies feel. They become more toned, well-balanced, stronger and flexible. Pilates is both gentle and extremely effective. It teaches the body balance and control that carries over into all other areas of your life.
Pilates is for Every Body
Whether you are a golfer, tennis player, dancer, gymnast, prenatal or postnatal women, back pain, cerebral palsy, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, hip injury/replacement, knee injury/replacement, a senior just starting to exercise, an elite athlete or somewhere in between, the foundation of Pilates movement will work for you.
Develops Core Strength and Improved Posture
The core muscles of the body are the deep muscles of the abdomen, back, buttocks and pelvic floor – “The Powerhouse”. Good posture is a reflection of good alignment supported by a strong core.
Increases Strength and Flexibility
In Pilates, we work toward a safe increase in strength and length of the muscles and range of motion within the joints.
Pilates is Whole-Body Fitness
Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Rita and Justin will design a customized comprehensive exercise program for each client. This program will utilize the various techniques and apparatus specifically created by Joseph Pilates to enhance toning and muscle-building. The actual exercise planning and coordination, along with the complete body awareness, is important to insure the correct progression of exercises and activities to make the most of each session.
