With a focus on ABM NeuroMovement®
Pilates is a low impact form of exercise that strengthens your body without harming your joints. Postures and movements performed in Pilates are aligned with the biomechanics of the human body and take into account the natural form of your body.
Every joint is most efficient if it is in a "neutral" position, using the least amount of effort to be in that position. A joint that is not in a neutral position has soft tissue: muscles, ligaments and tendons pulling on the joint in an imbalanced way. Over time, this creates pain and injury
Pilates will guide you to find/seek neutral.
When movements are made mindfully, with precision and attention the brain participates to its optimal capacity.
In Pilates, the term core refers to the relationship between the transverse abdominis, pelvic floor, multifidi and diaphragm. Through Pilates you will improve your ability to activate and utilize these deep postural muscles to guide and control movement.
