Pilates Benefits

Are you slouching right now as you read this?  Just wondering.  We’re here to make you stop that.  The major benefit of Pilates is postural changes to your body.  And you’re wondering about your Core.  Well, if you’re slouching, what is happening with your Core?  It’s probably doing a good job of making a muffin top because you’re not sitting the correct way.  Overall, when you learn how to use your body, even while sitting at a desk or in your car, you will make positive changes to it.  Our goal is to make you understand the mechanics of your body because only you can change it.

Who is Pilates For?

Pilates is for everyone.  We have seen aspiring 10 year old dancers, seniors looking to touch their toes and professional athletes.  Surprisingly, everyone comes in with the same goal, to become stretched and strengthened.  Can that same goal be achieved for everyone?  It most certainly can.  As you focus on your breathing and concentrate on specific muscles while training, you will feel differences and see results.  While flexibility takes some time to develop, your strength will build quickly.  Overall, to prevent injury, your goal is to have your strength equal your flexibility.  So, Pilates becomes necessary for everyone, keeping that goal in mind.
