What is Pilates?

The Pilates method is a total body conditioning and exercise system developed over a span of 60 years by German born athlete and physical therapy pioneer, Joseph H. Pilates (1880-1967). Utilizing the specialized equipment and over 500 exercises he designed. The method works by toning muscles as well as balancing muscular force at the joint level. It stimulates circulation through facilitating muscular flexibility, joint range of motion and proper musculoskeletal alignment. In addition, it promotes new neuromuscular patterns, heightened body awareness, and more precise coordination. All these things combine to help prevent future re-injury and reduce - even in some cases alleviate - chronic pain altogether.
