Who's it for?
Pilates is for everyone: the athlete, the office worker, the injured, the strong, the flexible and inflexible, the dancer, the boxer, the young, the elderly, and even equestrians. Pilates is ageless and genderless.
Improved core strength helps you lift more, proper alignment helps you run farther, and stretching relieves the pain and tension caused by an intense workout.
Back Pain Rehab
Pilates addresses the underlying structural imbalances in the body that lead to back pain. It tackles issues like a lack of core support, pelvic instability, muscular imbalances, and poor posture while increasing your body awareness.
Pilates improves balance and coordination while enhancing your skills with precision, control, and greater body awareness.
Pilates helps riders meet the physical demands of riding by increasing inner thigh strength and torso stability, helping you communicate with your horse with greater ease, and creating a more successful riding experience. Giddy up!
Frequent travel, whether in a plane, train, or automobile can wreak havoc on the body resulting most often in back pain, tight hip flexors, and general stiffness. A regular Pilates program can help prevent and reduce the aches and pains associated with travel, while the mat work can be used as maintenance while on the road.
The Pilates combination of stretching and strengthening helps you unwind and be present in the moment. Sitting at a desk in front of a computer all day and traveling extensively for work has detrimental effects on our posture and health. Pilates helps reverse this damage and you will leave sessions feeling taller and stronger.
Recovery and Injury Prevention
Many injuries are caused by muscular and structural imbalances in the body. Pilates promotes even musculature and alignment throughout the entire body starting with the core and working outward.
It is imperative for runners to have strong quad and hip abductors to properly support the knees and hips while running. Pilates increases your range of motion, creating a longer stride and increasing muscular endurance, all while teaching you to breathe properly from the diaphragm.
