The method was developed by Joseph Pilates to strengthen muscles, enhance flexibility and improve posture. Integrated movement of the whole body is accomplished by using a series of controlled exercises to engage the mind with the body. Focusing on the quality of each exercise will lead to stronger back and abdominal muscles, balanced muscle development, improvement of coordination and reduction of stress. Strength is built without stress on the joints and your greater range of motion will help eliminate strain and tension from the joints also preventing future injuries.
Achieving Optimal Health can not be done with exercise alone. Nutrition and daily habits play a large role. I can guide you through a Nutritional Program that will get you to your optimal weight. When your body is at its optimal weight, energy increases, sleep improves, joint pain dissipates and mood swings stabilize.
