The exercise method, which consists of hundreds of movements, is designed to develop the muscles which are necessary to build a strong, balanced and flexible body.
The Pilates method is best taught by a certified instructor who is comprehensively trained to teach the full-body system. Students learn specifically sequenced exercises which emphasize alignment, breathing, concentration and precision.

Pilates complements chiropractic care by targeting the deep postural muscles. Pilates builds strength and flexibility from the inside out. All exercises are done in a low number of repetitions.
