The Classical Pilates Method works toward the development of a strong core, using controlled movement through a range of apparatuses. In order to guide and train the body, each exercise requires the muscles to lift against gravity and the resistance of the springs, allowing full control of movement in the entire body and apparatus.

Implementing Classical Pilates into everyday activity provides a life changing experience, both mentally and physically, no matter the length of time you train. Whether this is your first encounter with Classical Pilates or you are giving it another try, we look forward to sharing the whole experience with you. 

Principles of Pilates

BREATH

All exercises are done with the rhythm of breath. 

This sends fresh oxygen to the muscles, and continues full range of motion.

CENTER 

Classical Pilates uses the center of the body, or the "Powerhouse".

All movement is supported by the center.

CONCENTRATION

 "It is the mind that guides the body."

- Joseph Pilates, The Creator of Classical Pilates

CONTROL 

"The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body and not at its mercy..."

- Joseph Pilates, The Creator of Classical Pilates

FLOW

Each exercise flows into the next. 

This allows maximum workout in a structured amount of time.

PRECISION

The quality, condition, or fact of being exact or accurate.
