about the pilates method

At the Core of the Pilates method: the Powerhouse

Pilates is the godfather of core strength training. Your core, or commonly called, the powerhouse, is comprised of the upper and lower abdominal muscles, the lower back and the buttocks. Conventional forms of exercise and athletic activities develop strength in your arms and legs, but largely ignore this area because these muscles are difficult to isolate and strengthen. This is the same set of muscles that support good posture and, if not used properly, will deteriorate with time.

Not only do Pilates exercises eliminate the need for tedious repetitions, but they are more effective because they work several muscle groups at the same time. The movements stretch one muscle group while strengthening another, and require a great deal of abdominal control. Your result is a toned body, but without the bulk seen in other exercise methods. A better result for the effort and time invested by you!

The central aim of Pilates is to create a fusion of mind and body, so that your body will move with economy, grace, and balance. The end goal is to produce an attention-free union of mind and body. You will learn how to use your body to the greatest advantage, making the most of its strengths, counteracting its weaknesses, and correcting its imbalances.Joseph Pilates practiced what he preached, a method he called Contrology, and lived a long, healthy life Upon his death in 1967 at the age of 87, Clara continued to teach the Pilates method at the studio until her retirement in 1971 when she left the studio in the able hands of Joseph’s pro¬†Romana Kryzanowska.

The method requires you to constantly pay attention to your body while doing the movements. Paying attention to movement is seen as so vital that it is considered more important than any other single aspect of the movements. There are 6 principles that encompass the nature of all Pilates exercises and movements. By focusing on these principles, you will see the quickest success that comes from this exercise method.
