Pilates is an exercise system designed to elongate, strengthen and restore natural balance in the body with the main focus on postural alignment and core stability.
Pilates conditions the whole body - no muscle group is over trained or under trained. The entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned. This leads to better performance, speedier recovery time and less chance of injury, which is why sports professionals and athletes use Pilates in their training.
"The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning develops the body uniformly, corrects posture, restores vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.”
— Joseph Pilates
