Joseph H. Pilates was a visionary who designed a system of exercises & apparatus to help bring the body into proper alignment, balance, and symmetry. Originally called “Contrology,” his method promotes ease of movement through breathing, concentration, control, centering, precision, balanced muscle development, fluidity, whole body movement, and relaxation.
The beauty of the system is that it can be adapted to fit the needs of everyone. It is a preferred training method for world-class athletes and dancers because it promotes strength gains without losing speed and range of motion. It can also be used for the therapeutic needs of rehabilitation patients because it builds strength and flexibility with non weight-bearing exercises. Pilates has also become popular with anyone interested in developing a strong, lean and flexible body.
Our studio is fully equipped with Balanced Body reformers, along with other traditional Pilates apparatus. We offer private and semi-private training, as well as small group classes using both the equipment and Pilates mat work.
Aligned’s highly skilled teachers are comprehensively trained through programs following the recommendations of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), and have experience working with all ages and abilities.
