The top 3 reasons to choose Pilates for your better health

Flexibility

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".

Rehab

Are you interested in learning more about the effect of trauma on the mind & body?

As a yoga teacher, have you had a students’ trauma triggered during one of your classes? Get the resources and tools you need to act appropriately when this happens.

Strength

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!

EQUIPMENT/PRIVATE SESSIONS

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.

The Reformer

The Reformer is the iconic piece of equipment in the Pilates practice.  It’s legacy has simple roots – the hospital beds in England during the first World War.  The Reformer is an excellent choice if you are injured or prepping/recovering from knee and/or hip joint surgery as it cancels out all the vertical pressure that regular exercise enforces.  Whether you’re goal is to increase strength, coordination and flexibility, or rehabilitate yourself, consider the Reformer an all round  champion!

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!
