Pilates Method

Pilates what is it?

Pilates is a method of holistic movement created by Joseph Pilates and developed during the early 1900’s. Joseph Pilates started creating the Pilates equipment during World War 1 when he was rehabilitating soldiers that were in the hospital. The equipment uses springs to create resistance because it was developed from a hospital bed. The Method itself is a sequence of exercises designed to strengthen the muscles from the core of the body. On a deeper level the principle of the method was intended to be used and applied to everyday activities, hence increasing one’s longevity. Today there are many versions of Pilates, either Classical or Contemporary. There is only one pure Classical Pilates Method, which is Joe’s Method.

How many times a week should I come?

Like all fitness programs you should attend twice a week.

Should I start with the Pilates Mat classes or Apparatus?

If you can start with a private session, that is the best way to start. We offer an intro to Pilates; which is 5 private sessions and 5 mat classes. However, each option is meant to compliment the other. So, just start!!! It takes about 5 mat classes to get the hang of the movement and the Method.
