Joseph Pilates understood that the body repairs and strengthens itself through movement.  To this end, our classical Pilates methodology emphasizes the balance of strength, stretch and control in the entire body.  It is not physical therapy or massage.  Nor is it yoga or meditation.  It is Pilates as it was intended - sweaty, hard exercise that provides dramatic results that will keep your body functioning as it ages, while enabling you to do whatever you enjoy doing - better and longer.  Click here to understand the difference is between classical and contemporary Pilates.  Click here to understand Classical Pilates Methodology.  Curious to see a Pilates workout?
