More About Pilates

A Typical Pilates Session

Your instructor will guide you through a specific sequence of exercises. These may be performed on a mat or using apparatus including the reformer, tower, chair or a combination of these.

During the session, you will move through a range of fundamental body movements intended to fully access your major muscle groups and articulation of your limbs. Special attention will be paid to developing strength and stability in your core as well as articulation of your spine, including flexion, lateral flexion, rotation and extension.
