Joseph H. Pilates developed this unique method of training 80 years ago. He believed in conditioning the mind and body together combining both Western and Eastern approaches to physical and mental conditioning. His original exercise techniques focused on Centering, Concentration, Control, Flowing Motion, Precision and Breath to aid in restoring the body to balanced postures, flexibility and efficiency in motion.

Spine related problems; Post-Surgical and other Musculo-Skeletal Injuries are resolved using core training to strengthen, coordinate and lengthen musculature. This improves postural positioning, decompresses the discs, joints and nerves relieving pain and inflammation allowing normalized function and healing of injured tissues. Teaching new neuromuscular movement patterns, precision of movement and body awareness, can enhance athletic performance. Dancers, cyclists, runners, paddlers, swimmers, climbers, golfers and other athletic groups requiring flexibility, coordination and good strength-to-weight ratios will benefit from this specialized cross training.
