about the pilates method
At the Core of the Pilates method: the Powerhouse
Pilates is the penultimate embodiment 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 lean, toned body, but without the bulk seen in other exercise methods. A better result for the effort and time invested by you!
The 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.
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.

Great environment and instructors! Can really feel the difference after each lesson. Been here for the past 3 years! Every time I feel the session becomes manageable, Song will increase the difficulty by another notch and continue to make it engaging and challenging.Carmen Chow
I've tried other studios and still find Pilates Flow to be the best. I really like how the instructors stay true to the classical approach, and I can really feel the difference in my body. Highly recommended!Joey Ng
The instructors at Pilates flow are well experienced and always look out for their client's best interest. My instructor is outstanding and experienced, and tailors the various reformer exercises to my needs. They are patient and encouraging, and this is the place to go if you want something that is personalized and not intimidating Pilate experience.
- Shane Yu
Great place 10/10 recommended. The studio is beautiful and the instructors are professional and experienced. I have never attended a pilates lesson in my life and always thought that it was just glorified yoga. However, after attending my first lesson here I can definitively say that I have found a new way to train my body. Will definitely be coming back here for more!??Yankwee Teng
I have practiced Pilates for five years until I found Pilates Flow @ 2nd. Here the teachers teach Romana’s classical Pilates. I finally understood and believe that practicing Pilates can change my body. Build body strength and flexibility as well as maintain a lean and long body. Here is a small cozy and well equipped studio with passionate instructors!
- Clara Barbero
Been learning here for 2 years under an easy going instructor who always encourages me to push harder. In the beginning I was inflexible and skinny-fat but now I can see improvements and tightening throughout my body especially around my abs, back and arms. It’s a calm and positive environment where I feel accepted compared to other studios I’ve tried which is why I think it’s the best pilates studio in Singapore.Michelle Chong
Great classes. The studio is clean and comfortable, and all the Instructors are very skilled and knowledgeable. The one on one classes are personalised to really address your specific health and fitness needs and goals.Serene Chan
Well equipped, Clean and peaceful studio with Attentive , knowledgeable and professional instructors. I have been with Pilates Flow for 3 years, attended both 1-1 and mat classes, instructors were not only encouraging and patient, they are all amazingly attentive to the details, both by making sure that I am working out the right core muscle in the right way and giving us specific instruction on how to achieve results of each exercise. Since I have started my lessons I no longer have backaches and feel great. ?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Angie Zoë Zhang
The studio offers a clean and cozy environment. It stays true to classical Pilates ( i.e. the original teachings of Joseph Pilates) It also keeps the Pilates Mat classes small with a maximum of six students to ensure personalised feedback and focus. I enjoyed the Pilates Mat class as it helps to ease the stiffness of my shoulders and lower back after a long day at work, as well as strengthening and toning my body.
- Amanda Westphal Owens
