Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s and incorporates the best aspects of Eastern and Western exercise disciplines.

“Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. Through Pilates you first purposefully acquire complete control of your own body and then through proper repetition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and coordination associated with all your subconscious activities.” – Joseph Pilates

The Pilates method blends breathing and body position awareness with muscle toning, strengthening and intensity of movement. This assures that the whole body is engaged and being utilized throughout the workout, producing a very flexible and visibly lean body.
