Pilates is a low impact form of exercise that strengthens, lengthens and tones your body. It focuses on working the intrinsic muscles creating stability, balance and proper postural alignment. Pilates is the ultimate conditioning program for creating a strong core, mobility and flexibility. The benefits practicing Pilates are many, and people from all walks of life and various states of fitness experience positive results from doing it. People over the age 50 find that the low impact work allows them to workout without putting too much stress on their joints. Athletes are able to increase flexibility, range of motion, hip stability and overall core power. For those that sit at a computer for most of their day Pilates is a great way to relieve the stress put on the spine that come from sitting for hours at a time. Many people come to us with chronic pain, low back, shoulder and hip issues and find that we are able to help alleviate that pain. We have often been successful in doing so when physical therapy and other programs have failed.
