Learn a bit more about the history and science behind
The Pilates method of exercise was developed in the early 20th century by German-born Joseph Pilates. Pilates believed that mental and physical health are interrelated and his system of exercises was developed with the intention of strengthening both the mind and the body. He developed more than 600 exercise for various pieces of apparatus he invented, all based on the philosophy that the "whole" mind, body and spirit must be exercised to achieve good health.

Amazing results for everyone
When practiced with consistency, Pilates will improve your overall wellbeing and body awareness. With a focus on building strength, improving flexibility and developing control and endurance, the instructor also places attention on breathing, balance, alignment and coordination. As you progress and your body strengthens and adapts to the exercises, intensity and resistance can be modified to create a more challenging class.
Joseph Pilates said that "in 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 you'll see the difference, and in 30 you'll have a new body".
