Mindful Movement

Mindful movement builds on the notion that the body and mind are interconnected. Mindful movement promotes body awareness through very focused and precise exercises like Pilates.With Pilates, your body learns (or re-learns) how to move at its most optimal. Pilates can give anyone – from beginners to elite athletes – a well-rounded fitness regimen that works the whole body and invigorates the mind.

Pilates for Athletes

Pilates builds a strong core, increases strength and flexibility, and improves posture, stability and alignment. By focusing on an athlete’s core – the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine – Pilates makes athletes more agile, helps prevent injury and increases sports performance.

Pilates and Physical Therapy

If you’ve been injured or are in physical therapy for chronic neck and back pain, hip/knee replacements, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, scoliosis or other conditions, research is showing that Pilates can be an effective complementary treatment. Be sure to discuss any exercise program with your healthcare team.
