– Joseph Pilates
Balanced muscular development. Increased body awareness. Improved core stability and integrated movement patterning. Deep flexibility. These are just some of the many benefits that can be realized from a regular Pilates practice.
Pilates is more than just a sequence of exercises. It embodies balance between stability and mobility in functional movement. It requires core activation and stabilization, total awareness, focus, and intent that drives each full body movement.
The focus required during the mind-body work of Pilates is an exercise itself, and perhaps the defining feature of the system of movement. The awareness cultivated during the work carries over into everyday life in the outside world. The physical effort of the Pilates repertoire and breath helps the aches and pains disappear, with a newfound strength and resilience in their place.
Pilates is available at Imprint in both private and duet sessions, and can also be experienced through Equipment or Mat classes. Contact the studio to schedule a private or duet session, or register for an apparatus or mat class on-line today.
