benefits of group classes
You already know that Pilates can provide you with flat abs, but there are plenty of other benefits from this safe and effective workout. Learn more about what these benefits are.
A MIND-BODY WORKOUT
By emphasizing proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, and concentration on smooth, flowing movement, Pilates provides a full mind-body workout. Focus is essential. Pilates starts with the breath. Learn more about the specific different kinds of breathing and how to differentiate between them.
A FOUNDATION TO BUILD ON
Spinal health and your body in general will thank you if you maintain proper posture while sitting down or standing up. Pilates classes reinforce proper posture while strengthening and lengthening muscles for a long, lean look.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
Pilates exercises train several muscle groups at once in smooth, continuous movements. By developing proper technique throughout group classes, you can re-train your body to move in safer and more efficient patterns of motion.
