While Joseph Pilates (1880-1968) is widely known for his development of specific mat and equipment-based movement exercises, the original practice has evolved significantly over the years. At the core of this gentle method of exercise, Pilates addresses muscle strength and flexibility to improve postural alignment, balance, and coordination. Bodycenter's methodology builds upon Joseph Pilates' original work, incorporating contemporary knowledge of biomechanics to develop progressive exercises.
There are many different approaches to teaching Pilates. Our holistic approach at Bodycenter Studios focuses on the details of movement while considering the balance of the "entire person." This allows us to develop high quality programs tailored to meet unique and specific needs.
