Pilates

I earned my STOTT Pilates certification as I went through my own journey of healing from severe back pain. Pilates techniques and movements taught me to recruit my deep abdominals, stabilize my core, and improve my posture -- and it transformed my understanding of the body. I use Pilates methods to help my patients regain strength, stability, flexibility and posture during their rehab.

 

What is Pilates?

 

Pilates is an exercise method using a movement repertoire based on principles such as breathing, axial extension, core stability, joint mobility, and overall movement integration. These exercises are performed on either a mat or specialized Pilates equipment such as the Reformer, Cadillac, Stability Chair, and Ladder Barrel. A complete Pilates session addresses the whole body and moves the spine and muscles through their full range of motion, resulting in increased strength, flexibility, and improved posture, balance.

 

Benefits of Pilates:

  • Core muscle stabilization

  • Increased strength and tone

  • Improved posture

  • Improved balance

  • Improved motor control

  • Improved muscle flexibility
