What is Pilates?

Pilates is a series of slow and controlled movements, with mindful purpose, designed to strengthen our core and improve every day movements. Every exercise incorporates these five principles:
-Concentration- to create a mind body connection
-Centering- to focus on every movement coming from the core
-Control- allowing mindful awareness to complete each movement
-Breath- to understand that in our breathing each movement is intensified
-Precision- knowing that every movement has a purpose
-Flow- to create balance, grace and ease, the way our bodies are meant to move
