METHOD

The authentic Pilates method as taught by Joseph Pilates has thrived for over a century.  I'm dedicated to teaching my community a contemporary approach to Pilates, preserving original technique while incorporating modern knowledge and principals.  Both the Classical and Progressive approach to Pilates are taught during my sessions.

 

BENEFITS

Mind-body exercise like Pilates is activity that keys on the mental focus of the physical movements being performed.  With this type of exercise, quality of movement is stressed over quantity of movement.  You’ll often see instructors using a lot of verbal “cues” and coaching on things like the quality of breathing, rhythmic inhalation and exhalation during the exercise, and proper body alignment. Simply put, mind-body exercise contributes to overall fitness and assists with engagement of the mind.
