What is Pilates?

Pilates is a full-body 

workout that balances 

strengthening and stretching

with alignment and toning.

Named after German physical fitness specialist Joseph Hubertus Pilates 

who devised a system of exercises 

using special apparatus and mat exercises

designed to improve physical strength, flexibility and posture in the individual.

In the studio sessions: Your instructor will guide you through apparatus and mat exercises 

and design for you a daily strengthening 

and flexibility routine you can do anywhere 

and that will last a lifetime!

“Pilates is the complete 

coordination of 

body, mind and spirit.”

- Joseph Hubertus Pilates
