Pilates is an exercise method originally developed by Joseph Pilates. It is a system of exercises that condition the entire body. Pilates strengthens the core, creates long and flexible muscles, improves joint mobility and helps align the body. It is a highly adaptable form of exercise that can be modified to be gentle enough to be used in physical therapy yet challenging enough to be used by professional athletes. Pilates trains the body to move more efficiently which is invaluable for preventing and recovering from injury, maintaining good posture, and creating optimal health.
