Pilates and more
Pilates is an intelligent exercise program designed to lengthen and strengthen the human body while developing a group of core muscles called “the Power House.” Specific equipment and movement instructions are incorporated into each session to improve, enhance and maintain your body’s natural strength, beauty and form. Pilates is effective for enhancing movement in all stages of life and can compliment and improve sport-specific activities and performance.
