What's Pilates?

 

Hollywood stars swear by it! Dancers don't start their days without it! What is this exercise program that you actually look forward to, which engages you, that leaves you refreshed and alert? It's Pilates (pronounced pil-LAH-teez).

 

Developed in the 1920's by the legendary physical trainer, Joseph H. Pilates, the Pilates method is a set of principles and movements designed to dramatically improve your strength, flexibility, posture and coordination. Pilates combines awareness of the spine, proper breathing, strength and flexibility training to achieve slimmer, longer, stronger muscles without building bulk.

 

Our Pilates classes are a comprehensive exercise routine lasting 55-minutes. An instructor will take you through a series of exercises and movements with an emphasis on your core. At times you will have to work slowly so that you can feel what you're doing. Getting in touch and feeling the muscle or joint you're exercising is very important. The movements may be unlike anything you've done before, and the results can be astonishing.

 

In addition to private and semi-private sessions Pilates Moves also offers Pre & Post Pregnancy Circuits, Studio Circuit Classes, Group Reformer Classes, Small Apparatus Classes, Pilates on the Ball Classes, Matwork Classes. These 55-minute classes incorporate all the principles and movements of the Pilates workout.

 

What you can expect physically will be a total change in your body. Your posture will improve, your stomach and buttocks will become more toned, your legs and arms will be leaner and your energy levels will dramatically improve as well.

 

Your plan should be to workout two to three times per week.

 

We also offer Barre classes, Yoga & AntiGravity classes

 

“In ten classes you will feel the difference,

 

in twenty sessions you will see the difference,

 

and in thirty classes you will have a whole new body”
