About Pilates

Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates at the end of World War I. It was primarily used as rehabilitation for wounded soldiers. Pilates brought his method to the United States in 1923 and spent years refining his approach.

Pilates may:

  • increase muscle strength and endurance

  • improve flexibility and posture

  • lead to better balance

  • result in decreased joint pain

Pilates focuses on small movements that require the use of important stabilizing muscles of the back and core. There is a strong emphasis on starting each exercise with a controlled breath that initiates a contraction of the core muscles. Pilates can be done on a mat or on specialized equipment. The equipment is unique as it only uses springs, levers, and your own body weight to provide resistance.

Evidence suggests that Pilates may be beneficial for those with the following conditions:

  • arthritis

  • urinary incontinence

  • respiratory conditions

  • joint injuries

  • back pain

Pilates Class

Mat Pilates

Pilates with small props

Mat Pilates is a pilates training practice that can be done on a mat, meaning, no reformer is used. In this class, you hold movements like planks, side planks, and core exercises to build your muscle groups and core strength. Much of the equipment that you find in a reformer class can also be used in a pilates mat workout. Your pilates instructor will give you options to use bands, exercise balls, and sometimes even small weights to help level up your pilates experience.

For a successful mat pilates workout, you only need your body weight and a pilates mat, which is thicker and denser than a traditional yoga mat. But, to up the ante a bit, you can use an exercise ball and bands to add a little more resistance.

Small Props (Balls, Bands, Circles & More!)

Adding small props and equipment to classes and workouts is a great way to provide extra challenge and variation to exercises!

This class incorporate a wide range of small equipment into the workouts, such as resistance bands, magic circles, toning balls, overballs, foam rollers and much more!
