Pilates is a comprehensive method of full-body exercise that focuses on strengthening core muscles to improve overall strength, posture, and well-being. The core, consisting of muscles in the abdomen, back, ribcage and hips, is often called the powerhouse of the body, and those muscles are key to stability, balance, and the function of the skeleton and other muscle groups.
At Core Connection Studio, Pilates is practiced on reformers, specialized apparatus that work with a series of springs, straps, and pulleys to create resistance and maximize the benefits of the exercises being performed. Pilates movements are fluid, efficient, and non-impact. Every exercise can be adapted for any fitness level, making Pilates a perfect method of exercise for everyone. At Core Connection, participants also learn best practices for movement and posture throughout the entire day.
