Pilates is an exercise and physical movement method that was developed 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates. It is designed to control your body, mind and muscles. Joseph rehabilitated injured WW1 soldiers in England and later used his method (back then called “Contrology”) on professional athletes and dancers in New York City to prevent them from getting injured and reach their peak performance.
It is a systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns. Your deep abdominal strength, joint mobility, flexibility, blood circulation and balance will be trained. In that way it will improve your posture, you will feel more energetic, taller and stronger and be able to do more things in life! Pilates is suitable for everyone, all ages and from beginners to professional athletes.
