What Is Pilates?

Pilates is a system of over 500 controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the total body. It is a balanced blend of strength and flexibility training that improves posture, reduces stress and creates long, lean muscles without bulking up. Pilates works several muscle groups simultaneously through smooth, continuous motion, with a particular concentration on strengthening and stabilizing the core, the abdomen, back and pelvic girdle region.

The focus is on quality of movement rather than quantity, which makes one feel invigorated rather than exhausted after a session. Pilates takes a balanced approach so that no muscle group is overworked and the body works as an efficient, holistic system in sports and daily activity. Pilates exercises can be performed on a mat or on specialized equipment such as a Reformer, Cadillac and Ladder Barrel.

  • Why Come to Power Pilates Plus?

    When choosing where to practice Pilates there are several things to take into consideration. Your instructors certification/education as well as pursuit of continuing education courses of the Pilates method is a crucial component to consider.  Your instructor should have completed a comprehensive training program, not just a weekend mat course. Look at class size of the class, the larger the class less personal attention for you. How much time does your instructor teach each week.  The more bodies an instructor sees in a small setting the more experience they will have to give to you. At Power Pilates Plus all instructors training in advanced levels as well as experience with beginners and classes are limited to 3 students per class.
