Pilates is a fitness class that stresses the importance of the core muscles of the abdomen, back and buttocks, and works to strengthen the center, lengthen the spine, improve balance and posture, and improve flexibility and body-awareness. In this class, students will perform a number of exercises interspersed with stretching and balancing, so that muscles do not become overly tense. Exercising using the Pilates method is an intense experience, but postures can be modified for both beginner and more experienced exercisers.
