What is it? — Pilates is a form of exercise that has been around since the 1920s. Not until recently has it been brought to the masses in most communities and people from every walk of life are getting addicted. Place your hand a few inches above your belly button, then suck in your abdominal muscles by pulling the belly button back and down into the spine. This movement is the very core of the principles of Pilates. Joseph Pilates developed his method in the early 20th century as a way to help sick patients rehabilitate their bodies from illness or after an injury. It has evolved from there into a great program for athletes, dancers and people from all facets of life to stay injury free and operate at their best level. Quite simply Pilates is the most effective exercise for our modern day sedentary lives society has transitioned to as a result of industrialization & office work.

“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit!” ~ Joseph H. Pilates

Pilates’ method uses apparatus — the Cadillac and Reformer being the most well-known — with springs that provide the resistance and assistance needed to work the entire body from the core, or the Powerhouse. Pilates movements are controlled by engaging the abdominal muscles while making sure to not tighten the neck, lose the stomach contraction or hunch the shoulders. In time, the body will lengthen, tone, realign and increase in flexibility.

Who can do it — Pilates is not age, gender, or fitness level specific! Pilates is for everyone. There are more than 600 exercises, so as students get stronger they can increase resistance or increase the intensity of the movement. Pilates is also great for those recovering from injury, who are postpartum, have scoliosis, multiple sclerosis, cancer and even people going through chemotherapy.

What to Wear — Nonrestrictive clothing like leggings and tank tops is recommended, to allow for full upper and lower body movement. Clean socks are required at all times. Jewelry, watches and rings should not be worn and long hair is best tied back.

What is the Cost — Purchase one of the various club memberships for monthly group class participation. All classes are open to the community and do not require a membership. Bodies by Pilates offers class “tickets” in packages anywhere from 8 to 30 classes.
