Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. Joseph Pilates presents his method as the art of controlled movements.
Pilates focuses on engaging the mind and body to create exercises that stimulate not just our physical bodies, but our mind and spirit as well.. Every exercise is performed with attention to the breath, proper form, correct alignment and balanced muscle control in order to decrease pain, increase vitality and optimize physical performance.
