About Pilates Center by Bernadette
We believe in providing our clients with exceptional teaching and all of our instructors are graduates of the certification program administered by Romana’s Pilates, an organization exclusively devoted to the education of Pilates.
All of our classes enable the student to develop good alignment, posture, core strength and flexibility. We believe that Pilates has the power to change your mind, body and life. As a result, we have developed a strong and loyal clientele and many wonderful supporters.
Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. These exercises concurrently involve one’s body and mind to the purpose of improving posture, restoring muscular tone and correcting any imbalances in the body.
How It Works
It all takes place in your core or “powerhouse,” which is comprised of the lower abdominal muscles, the lower back and the buttocks. Conventional forms of exercise and athletic activities develop strength in your arms and legs, but do not effectively activate the deep “powerhouse” muscles. This is the same set of muscles that support good posture and, if not used properly, will deteriorate with time. We teach you the principles of Pilates – quality, control, centering, breathing and flow of movement.
Programs Customized For You
Joseph H. Pilates created over 500 exercises to be performed on uniquely designed apparatus. Our qualified Pilates instructors will develop a customized workout routine that best benefits your body and individual needs. You get what your body needs and requires. Pilates is not just an exercise program, it’s a way of life.
The results: you sit better, you sleep better, you stand better, and you feel more in control of your body.
