Your body is composed of more than just muscle. It is a complex system including bones, connective tissue, joints, fluids, and nerves. These systems work together enabling you to think, move, and be. When these systems are not functioning well together various ailments can develop, including joint and muscle pain, poor posture, weakness, stress, anxiety and poor sleep quality.
Pilates is based on a unique set of principles that trains you to develop your awareness and control of how you breathe, move, feel and think about movement. These principles are practiced during every exercise. The more regularly you practice, the more integrated, smooth, and powerful your movements become and you might also experience a reduction in stress, anxiety and improved sleep.
