Pilates Mat Class and Apparatus Instruction The Authentic Pilates method of body conditioning is a series of exercises developed to create a healthy body, mind, and lifestyle.

This method was developed over ninety years ago and continues to be an effective and unique system of exercises that strengthens and tones muscles, improves circulation, improves flexibility, improves posture and will unite the body and mind. The Pilates method has a strong focus on the deep core muscles of the body, the abdominals, buttocks, and lower back (known as the “powerhouse”).

This area is the control center for movement. Having a strong powerhouse will allow one to perform daily activities, as well as sporting events without injury, stress, or fatigue. Authentic Pilates method is a mindful activity requiring much concentration. Focus on the various exercises requires integrating the mind and body. This connection helps to improve mental and physical capabilities. It provides a refreshing and energizing workout. Whether your goal is to improve overall body condition, tone muscles, trim inches, stretch tight muscles or decrease stress or fatigue, our sessions, based on the teachings of Joseph Pilates, can help you. Our classes can also help those with back or neck pain, orthopedic conditions, asthma, or other respiratory problems, balance disorders, or chronic pain. Regardless of your current level of fitness, Pilates can help to improve the body condition and assist with injury prevention. At Mind Body we offer private and semi-private sessions by appointment, in addition to mat classes. We also offer an introductory Package for mat work. The 4 sessions package will introduce the participant to the mat exercises that are performed in the drop-in classes. Classes and lessons are taught by instructors that have been certified by Romana Kryzanowska and Sari Mejia Santo.
