The top 3 reasons to choose Pilates for your best health
To become more limber, one must move the joints through their full range of motion. Flexibility concerns more than just the muscles. By gently moving the joints through their full range of motion, you'll see how the practice overtime releases tight hips and shoulders. With a focus on articulation, the spine learns to move sequentially, and in turn the joints are left feeling oiled and "hydrated". So yes, to repeat myself, the old adage stands true: "Move it, or lose it".
Pilates is a gentle, low-impact form of exercise that emphasizes postural alignment, proper breathing, the efficiency of movement, flexibility, core strengthening, and muscular endurance. It is a suitable introduction or reintroduction to physical activity.
Pilates was designed for strength: increasing, regaining, and maintaining it. Whether you’re an athlete, an artist, or a fitness enthusiast, we’ve got you covered! When your core is strong, your limbs can move freely. Pilates provides a solid base for any active person; it is also a complete and enjoyable activity unto itself!
These one-on-sessions are perfect for the individual who wants time just to themselves! Private sessions work well for the client who has a specific goal in mind whether it’s to tone up, strengthen, increase flexibility or rehabilitate an area of their body.
In-studio and online options available.
The Reformer is the iconic piece of equipment in the Pilates practice. Whether your goal is to increase strength, coordination, and flexibility, or rehabilitate yourself, consider the Reformer an all round champion!
The Arc is yet also another versatile piece of equipment used to open both the front and the back of the body.
The Ladder Barrel
The Ladder Barrel is also part of the original equipment created by Joseph Pilates. It is a highly versatile creation and a personal favourite. Just wait and see what we can do!
