As our tagline says, we strongly believe in the genius of Joe Pilates, but we are also committed to offering our students a variety of classes to stay challenged and engaged. We consult with experts throughout the country to develop routines to enhance our classical Pilates base. To that end, a few months ago we added barre classes and recently a jumpboard reformer class.
Nearly 8 in 10 Americans suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. For many, it is chronic. Back pain is the #2 reason for doctors’ visits. It is the #1 cause of disability in the world. It is one of the most common reasons for missed work in the United States.
Pilates promotes back health. It focuses on core strength, which improves abdominal and lower back strength, balance, flexibility and posture. Pilates teaches awareness of neutral alignment of the spine and strengthening the deep postural muscles which support this alignment. Neutral alignment reduces stresses to the structures of the spine, muscle, nerve, bone, and fascia which is essential to reducing back pain.
We want to go somewhere I feel comfortable, am encouraged to work hard, make friends, feel part of a community and see results! This is what we’ve designed the studio to be. Come in, be part of a very small class where the trainer knows your name and gives you individualized instruction. Make friends, share a cup of coffee or tea after class. After a month or two, you’ll notice that your back doesn’t hurt anymore. People will tell you that you look taller. You’ll be able to bend down and pick things up without thinking about it.
Quite simply, Pilates is a strength building workout. It will focus on strengthening your core, but it will also strengthen and lengthen every single muscle in your body. You will be instructed by highly-trained, highly-skilled professionals. With our small class sizes, workouts can be customized for every single person. After 30 sessions, you will stand taller, look leaner and feel wonderful. I promise!
