Why Pilates?

From the demands of work, family and community to prolonged periods of sitting or inactivity, daily life challenges our physical well-being. Other threats to mobility and optimum function include injuries from trauma, improper athletic form or muscle use (or overuse) and unbalanced muscle development.

Intelligent mind-body movement can help us recover and enhance our physical body, and Joseph Pilates provided a roadmap to achieving that objective. Years ahead of his time, Pilates said we must first learn how to breathe – and from there, we learn how to move and discern our specific body’s needs.

Pilates practice is effective in the rehabilitation of muscular, orthopedic, neurological, and other medical conditions. The exercises are designed to improve function of the muscular and skeletal systems, enhance circulation, augment energy, and elevate overall individual levels of fitness. They also improve movement efficiency and body awareness in everyone from non-exercisers to athletes.

“Breathing is the first act of life and the last. Our very life depends on it. Since we cannot live without breathing, it is tragically deplorable to contemplate the millions and millions who have never mastered the art of correct breathing.”

– Joseph Pilates
