IT'S NOT JUST PILATES IT'S ABOUT YOU
PILATES is a system of exercises that involves the major muscle groups in the body. It's not the individual movements , but the entire series that has kept the Pilates Method effective for over 80 years. The system is based on placement of the anatomy and improvement of the circulatory system, as well as stretching and strengthening of the entire body.
