Pilates (pronounced Pi-LAH-teez) is a system of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates that strengthens the body’s inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health.

In addition, other benefits to practicing Pilates include:

  • longer, leaner muscles

  • relief from stress and back pain
  • enhanced athletic performance
  • heightened mind-body awareness.

One can practice Pilates on a mat or on specially designed equipment. Anyone can take and benefit from Pilates. There are several modifications available to fit most participants’ needs.
