Is Pilates like yoga?
Yes and no. Pilates was developed by a man named Joseph Pilates in the early 1900?s. His method is a beautiful mixture of many different movement techniques (including yoga-like postures), styles and his personal insights into the body. Like yoga, Pilates emphasizes mindfulness and helps to cultivate focus and intention through movement. Both practices accentuate the mind-body connection. Like yoga, Pilates is meant to be practiced regularly with dedication. Unlike yoga, Pilates is a series of controlled rhythmic movements done with highly focused attention and repeated generally 8-10 times as apposed to yoga where postures (Asanas) are generally worked into and held. Pilates focuses on alignment and the integration of the whole body as a well functioning system as it's primary goal. Yoga was created thousands of years ago as a spiritual practice. Pilates can become a very mindful practice that eases the mind and strengthens the body, but is not emphasized as a spiritual practice. Both practices promote awareness, strength, balance between stability and mobility and are best used as a regular and consistent practice. Pilates and yoga are wonderful compliments and students who engage in both achieve tremendous benefits.
Is working on the equipment better than working on the mat?
No. In the beginning Pilates then called Contrology was mat work alone. The work starts on the mat at its most fundamental and ends on the mat at its most advanced. The equipment was later designed to assist those who could not get down on the mat or had limitations in achieving the movements properly. Today we use the Pilates apparatus as a tool to both assist and deepen student's understanding of their body and to offer challenge. Pilates is a complete system on the mat and can offer tremendous benefits. Work on the equipment is sometimes better suited for particular students those with injuries or limitations and can add to a students depth of understanding and development. We find the work on the equipment can help to propel students forward, but is not necessary for ultimate success.
What should I wear?
Comfortable, yet form-fitting clothing so that we can evaluate your posture and movement patterns. Socks with sticky bottoms or bare feet. And please no fragrances.
How many times a week should I practice Pilates?
You will see the most benefit from Pilates if you practice at least 3 times a week. Your practice can include group classes, private and/or semi-private sessions, home practice, and self practice. We recommend working with an instructor's guidance 2-3 times a week in the beginning in order to establish your practice. Ideally our Pilates practice becomes a part of our everyday life. Thirty minutes a day everyday is what Joseph Pilates hoped for us.
What kind of classes can I take at your studio?

What Pilates help my back pain?
Although you should always consult your physician before starting any fitness routine, a Pilates workout is gentle and controlled with no sudden jarring actions. Pilates focus on abdominal strength, flexibility, and posture lends itself well to those with back pain. However, these principles can be difficult to learn in a group setting, especially for those who may require specific modifications to avoid re-injury or aggravation of symptoms. We recommend that all clients with a history of back pain, especially if it is ongoing, take a private session before participating in the mat class. This allows us to evaluate your abilities and make recommendations to improve the safety of each exercise.
What is the Difference Between Pilates and Weight Training?
Pilates strengthens AND stretches muscles (unlike weight training) and improves body posture and awareness. Pilates typically incorporates more muscles in one exercise than in weight training because it is three-dimensionalexercises can be performed using all movement planes. Pilates' emphasis is on rebalancing muscles around the joints, and balancing strength with flexibility. It also focuses on concentric-eccentric contraction for injury prevention and corrects over-training and muscle imbalance that leads to injury.
How long does a session usually last?
Is it a cardio workout and will it help me to lose weight?
While Pilates is not a cardio workout per se, the focus on core strength and flexibility make Pilates a wonderful compliment to a well rounded fitness program. Pilates promotes exquisite body awareness and disciplined practice. This focus is an invaluable addition to a responsible diet and regular cardio work which will help you shed those extra pounds.
Can the exercise be modified for my level of ability, strength and endurance?
Absolutely! Pilates can be tailored to any level not just of fitness, but also of health. It's these modifications that make Pilates ideal for someone just starting out, while still providing a challenging and engaging workout for athletic types and well-trained weekend warriors. If you are injured, pilates exercises can be modified and geared toward restoring functional movement patterns and aiding in the recovery of soft tissue injuries. The exercises can just as easily be modified to provide a greater challenge for those who are further along in their pilates practice. Pilates benefits men and women alike, all ages, those who are recovering from injury or chronic pain, athletes looking to enhance their abilities and is an excellent workout for women who are pre or post natal.
