What is Pilates?

The Pilates Method is a physical fitness system that was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates.

The program focuses on the core postural muscles that help keep the body balanced and are essential to providing support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and strengthen the deep torso muscles, which are important to help alleviate and prevent back pain.
