CHALLENGING & ENGAGING

Pilates conditions the body through lengthening and stretching movements. Pilates is a synthesis of calisthenics, yoga and ballet that improves flexibility, muscle tone, strength and balance. Major muscle groups are balanced and the mind is focused through breathing and body awareness exercises.
