What is Pilates?
Pilates is a form of body conditioning in which one uses the body
combined with the mental effort to accomplish simple yet demanding
movements aimed to challenge and strengthen the core (abdominal)
muscles as well as gain mobility and stability of the spine.
What does Pilates do for you? Pilates helps to flatten
your tummy, strenghten your abdominal muscles, increase your
flexibility of your limbs and spine and helps to decrease tension
build up caused by stresses of daily living.
