What is Pilates?

Pilates is a method of exercise that uncovers your best body. The Method was developed in the 1920’s-1960’s by Joseph Pilates.

The exercises strip away layers of tension and bulk by using alignment, breath, and mindfulness. What’s left behind is your true body: long, lean, supple muscle. You will learn how to work from the center out. It will make you sweat, use muscles you didn't know you had, and feel good.

Will Pilates work for me?

Pilates is for everybody. You need to be committed to The Method and mentally ready. It meets you where you are and challenges you safely. You’ll work your entire body incredibly hard and be extremely challenged. No matter what shape you are in you will feel and see results immediately.


Pilates will rid your body of tension patterns and leave behind supple muscle, IF done correctly. Let me teach you the real Pilates Method; start your physical ritual today!
