  Pilates is a method of body conditioning which trains the mind and body to work together toward the goal of overall fitness. There are over 500 different exercises performed on the mat and the unique pieces of apparatus. Each exercise is done in a particular sequence, with a minimum number of repetitions and a high degree of precision and mental focus. The movements are continuous from one exercise to the next, and as the client progresses, the workout becomes increasingly more challenging and aerobic. The true Pilates method captures the benefits of Eastern exercise philosophies, such as yoga, by emphasizing mental focus, breathing, and flexibility. Pilates also maximizes strength and endurance, which is the focus of traditional forms of Western exercise methods. By blending the best of these approaches, the Pilates method trains the mind and body to work together toward the goal of overall fitness.Pilates is designed to stretch and strengthen while teaching balance and control of the body, posture, and core strength which spills into every area of one's life.
