What is Pilates?
Pilates, also known as “Contrology”, is a series of mind-body exercises that were developed by Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920’s. Originally designed as a method of rehabilitation, the purpose of these exercises evolved to strengthen the core muscles, abdomen and back. Benefits include improved posture, balance, strength, flexibility, range of motion, and a heightened awareness of the mind-body connection through breath.
