The Pilates Method (pronounced puh-LAH-teez) was developed in the 1920s by the legendary physical trainer, Joseph H. Pilates. The Pilates Method is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility and strength for the total body without building bulk. Some of the first people to use the Pilates Method were dancers such as Martha Graham and George Balanchine and has been embraced by dancers for years.
Today Pilates is a highly regarded conditioning method throughout the world. It is an exercise program that you look forward to, and that leaves you refreshed and alert with a feeling of physical and mental well-being. The Pilates Method is a series of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns. Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as fitness but also as an important asset to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.
During your introductory session you are taught the framework and fundamental principles behind the Pilates Method. You will receive a postural analysis at the beginning of your session and you are encouraged to express any fitness or health goals so Sondra can help you develop a routine that will help you reach your goals the right way.
The basics of alignment and breathing are stressed while you learn basic movements on the various Pilates equipment. In addition, Sondra will give you homework to encourage the new transformation of your body and your personal goals so to retain what you are learning.
Benefits of Pilates
The benefits of Pilates are numerous. After your very first session you will have a greater awareness of your posture and the way your body works during your daily life. You will lengthen, strengthen and tone your muscles, increase flexibility and reduce pain or discomfort caused by poor posture, repetitive movements or chronic injury. Not only will you leave feeling taller and lighter, your coordination will improve and you will gain a sense of relaxation and balance.
Inversion therapy is an effective solution to your back and neck pain! This treatment reduces the stress in the back by increasing the space between your ligament and vertebrae discs. Inversion therapy has been known to reduce chronic back pain, fatigue or muscle stiffness, improve spinal health, increase flexibility, and reduce the need for surgery.
