About Pilates

What is Pilates?

What a great question and one that is asked frequently.  Maybe you have heard it improves flexibility and core strength.  The answer is yes and so much more.
Originally called Contrology, Pilates, often referred to as “The Method”, was created by Joseph Pilates in 1918.  Pilates is the coordination of the body, mind and spirit through breath and movement. Movement and control are two of the main principles of Pilates.  Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, aligns the spine, invigorates weakened areas and strengthens the deep intrinsic muscle of the body.  Over time, a variety of styles of Pilates have been created.  At B3 Pilates we teach classical Pilates, which means the work is taught as close as possible to Joseph Pilates’ original work.
