What is Pilates?
Pilates is a total mind-body conditioning method that works by building strength from the inside-out. It is an exercise program based on developing your deep stomach and back muscle to create a stable central core from which you will develop flexibility, strength, tone and correct posture.
Rebalancing your body and focusing your mind will give you a more confident body image and release unwanted stress and tension.
