Pilates is a unique and effective disipline of body-mind exercise evolved from the Joseph Pilates method.
The devolopment of Yoga can be traced back to over 5,000 years ago, but some researchers think that Yoga may be up to 10,000 years old.
Pilates and Yoga can dramatically change the way your body looks, feels and performs. It teaches body awareness and good posture. Pilates and Yoga builds strength without excess bulk and focuses on attaining core stability while providing a full body workout.
Pilates and Yoga is a 3-dimensional method where exercise is performed using all planes of movement. Emphasis is placed on breath, rebalancing muscles around the joints, corrects over-training and muscle imbalances that lead to injury.
