We provide one-on-one Therapeutic Pilates sessions for our clients to provide the continuum of care from Physical Therapy to a wellness program. Therapeutic Pilates is for clients who don’t necessarily need hands-on physical therapy but do not feel ready or confident to join an unsupervised or more advanced exercise format. Pilates uses spring-resistant equipment allowing the body to work in a safe and supportive way by unweighting the body against gravity. Pilates integrates all components of physical fitness including strength, mobility, endurance, coordination and balance. Our instructors are certified in the Pilates method, which was developed by Joseph Pilates (1883-1967) and originally called “Contrology”. During your session, you will utilize all Pilates apparatus, including the reformer, tower and chair. Using the principles of Pilates, each session will focus on:
Breathing for diaphragm and pelvic floor coordination and improved intra-abdominal pressure; Concentration by utilizing the mind/body connection for improved movement awareness; Control of correct, quality movement without utilizing faulty mechanics; Centering of your movement, utilizing your core muscles to enhance function for your arms and legs; Flowing Movement by utilizing dynamic exercises for improved neuromuscular control; Precision of purposeful muscle recruitment and correct postural alignment.
