Pilates is a method of exercise created by Joesph Pilates.

Pilates brings together a set of fundamental principles that include breathing, core control (activation), strength, coordination, body awareness, stamina, mobility & balance. 

Pilates is a mindful exercise meaning it brings together a mind-body connection. It is a relaxing & gentle form of exercise but don't let that fool you into thinking it is easy. It provides plenty of challenges that help improve your movement, strength & function. 

Pilates exercises are either floor based on the Mat or large pieces of equipment, including the Reformer, Tower, Ladder barrel, spine corrector & combo chair.
