About Pilates

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.


about-3Pilates Mat: Refine Your Body

This class teaches the authentic Mat Work as created by Joseph Pilates. There is no apparatus used (except Magic Circles and hand weights). One of the best investments Pilates’ clients can make is to learn the Mat Work well, facilitating quicker, consistent and budget friendly results.

Who Benefits: Everyone!

The great thing about Pilates is that it’s for everyone. Our clients range from 15 to over 80 years old, and are teenagers, moms and busy professionals. Whether you are a beginner, an accomplished athlete or somewhere in between, come join us at Pilates Center by Bernadette. Your body and mind will appreciate it.


about-4Pilates Apparatus: Authentic Gratz Equipment

We are a fully equipped Gratz Studio (apparatus created from original specs of Joseph Pilates). This allows us to use the Reformer, the Tower units and springs to teach your body to properly do Pilates. Because our classes are small, you can expect individual attention to detail, impeccable form and therefore reap the benefits of Pilates right away. Joseph Pilates recommended you do Pilates 3 times a week, this can be found in a combination of private lessons, apparatus classes, mat classes and doing your homework.
