​The History of Pilates
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates and brought to America in the late 1920’s and was originally called “Contrology.”  It is ​​​​​defined by Mr. Pilates himself as “complete coordination of the body, mind, and spirit”.  
Joseph Pilates, who used his methods to help the sick and wounded during WWII in Germany and later dancers and the elite in New York City, was said to be generations ahead of his time. 

Today’s hectic lifestyle and stress overload contribute to an overwhelming amount of body tightness, weight gain, and depression. We as a society are in an even greater need of the practice of "Contrology" or Pilates. Through this method, you will begin to live and see life differently and have the energy at the end of the day to do the things you enjoy.

The Benefits

Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It develops your body uniformly so no muscle group is over trained or undertrained and your smaller muscles groups are strengthened to support your larger core muscles. Now you can enjoy your daily activities and sport of choice with greater ease, higher performance, and with less risk of injury!
