A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy exercise


What is Pilates?

Pilates is an exercise technique developed through the joint lens of sports science and dance method. It aspires for length in a muscle rather than bulk.  Its tools for achieving this goal are correct alignment and considered resistance setting when exercising.
