First time at Pilates?

Ask about our INTRODUCTORY

What is Pilates?

Classical Pilates follows the original exercise routines developed by Joseph H. Pilates, the creator of the Pilates Method.


Originally named “contrology,” or “the science of control” these exercises utilize specialized equipment designed to increase strength and flexibility through uniform muscle development, core strength, and movement.


Joseph Pilates believed that a healthy body bred a healthy mind and a peaceful world would follow.
