What is Pilates? Pilates is a method of exercise developed in the early 1900’s by German-born Joseph Pilates. He formulated his regimen to include 6 principles: precision, fluidity, breath, control, concentration and centering. His method of exercise focuses on strengthening, stretching, and balancing the whole body. By stabilizing and strengthening the core muscles of the body, Pilates helps to optimize your body’s performance through a mind-body connection at every task whether it be running a marathon or simply sitting at your desk.
