WHAT IS PILATES?: Joseph Pilates tried his hand at everything from martial arts to gymnastics. It was through his endless curiosity of movement that he designed his movement program. Based on 6 principles, he connects the body and the mind for a truly holistic workout.
Unlike many other workout programs, the essence of Pilates is mobility of the spine, connected to a strong core, with a focus on establishing supple and healthy joints, all through thoughtful, specific movements.
