“Contrology (Pilates) develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.” – Joseph Pilates, the founder

Everyone has heard of the name “Pilates”. Health and fitness magazines hail the Pilates Method as the hottest workout regime of the decade. Celebrities credit it for their toned muscles. Professional athletes combine it with their routine training exercises. Doctors and physical therapists integrate it into their practices to treat back, shoulder, neck pain, and more. So what is Pilates exactly and what can it do for us?

Pilates is an exercise system that engages your mind and body, designed to strengthen the weak and challenge the strong. It trains the mind to control over your body by maintaining an awareness of how the body muscles work together in synergy with each other with these 6 key principles: breathing, center, control, concentration, precision and flowing movement. Breathing properly, maintaining a neutral spine for better posture, strengthening your core as the powerhouse of your joints and muscles, loosening up tight muscles, proper alignment of the body are a few among the essentials in Pilates exercises. Overtime when you will apply this mind-body awareness to your everyday life, it can transform the way you breathe, sit, move and use your muscle in your everyday life and produce lifelong changes in your life.
