The Practice of Pilates

Pilates (puh-LAH-teez) is a non-impact, total body, deep muscle conditioning method developed by Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920s. Pilates works the body from the inside out, developing strength, flexibility, and coordination while     improving body alignment, awareness and balance. 

Who Should Do Pilates

You may have heard about Pilates from celebs, television personalities or professional athletes who have  touted the profound results they have seen through a regular practice of Pilates.  But  the truth is, Pilates isn’t just for elite athletes or famous movie stars – Pilates is for all bodies!  Pilates is a non-impact, balanced system that works as well for the super fit, as it does for the  uninitiated. It can produce results regardless of age or fitness level. Like all exercise programs, Pilates is a commitment to yourself. Adhering to a consistent schedule is the only way to achieve the results you desire. As Joe said, it’s a program “that will last all your life!”

Pilates will…

  • Increase core strength/stability

  • Enhance balance and flexibility

  • Improve posture and spinal flexibility

  • Flatten, tone and strengthen the stomach, back, thighs and buttocks without bulk

  • Improve focus and coordination

In the Soul Movement studio, exercises are done utilizing the Reformer, a spring based apparatus that Joe specially designed, that provides a very low impact, highly efficient muscle strengthening and flexibility workout. The Reformer challenges difficulty but also assists movement, aiding in appropriate and safe positioning to perform the exercises. You will quickly notice improvements in posture, energy, flexibility, balance, strength, stamina, and muscle tone.
