Are you looking to move effortlessly or do you want to work hard? Pilates can help you do both. Looking good and feeling good are more connected to proper alignment than you realize. We call our classical Pilates mat classes "technique" classes because it isn't really what you do that makes the change--it's how you do it.

Pilates teaches your body to work for itself rather than against itself, which is why it's the perfect salve for tired, aching bodies and the perfect compliment to any training regime. By systematically stretching and strengthening your body as an integrated whole, challenging core “powerhouse” muscles, and rewiring faulty mechanics, you'll restore proper alignment and work out muscular imbalances that otherwise lead to aches and pains.
