Pilates is a system of movement and exercise created and developed by German-born athlete, Joseph Hubertus Pilates. His innovative method educates, re-patterns, realigns, and balances your body. It teaches body awareness, good posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit. Joe designed Pilates to help develop the natural skill that will allow you to gain muscular power with corresponding endurance, ability to perform arduous duties, and to work or travel for long periods of time without undue body fatigue of mental strain. This means you are able to perform everyday activities with ease and perfection.
