What is Pilates?
_Pilates is a total body conditioning system that strengthens and stretches the body through controlled movements. Many of the exercises are done lying down so you are not working against gravity. We have a fully equipped studio that enables us to use apparatus designed to help you find the muscles we are working to strengthen and lengthen. Your “Powerhouse”refers to your entire abdominal region, lower back and buttocks. By initiating your movements from your Powerhouse, you are working the body in the most efficient manner possible. You engage several muscle groups at the same time- stretching one group while strengthening another. This allows for maximum benefits without countless repetitions. Pilates also addresses muscular imbalances. We encourage the body to work evenly on both sides and strengthen weak areas and/or sides of the body. Strengthening and stretching through control.
_We are dedicated to teaching this system of exercise as it was originally developed by Joseph Pilates. Encouraging the mind and body to work together puts us on the path to achieving overall wellness. Find our more at romanapilates.com
