Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It teaches body awareness, good posture and functional healthy movement. Pilates also improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion.

Since Pilates develops your body uniformly, no muscle group is over trained or undertrained and your smaller muscles groups are strengthened to support your larger core muscles. This allows you to enjoy your daily activities and sport of choice with greater ease, higher performance, and with less risk of injury.
