Pilates is the foundation of our movement studio -- it is our first love.
Pilates was originally termed Contrology (the science of the mind controlling the body) by its creator Joseph Pilates. It's a form of exercise that connects body, mind, and spirit via breath.
Professional athletes perform Pilates, because they understand that a properly aligned spine and a musculature that's balanced translates to less injuries and a prolonged career. Hollywood A-listers perform Pilates, not simply for a long, lean look, but for the energizing effect that helps them endure those 18-hour days on set.
Through the Pilates experience, we will help you find your center, connecting all aspects of your being to create wholeness and harmony.
At Centered, there are a variety of ways to experience Pilates:
| Private Pilates Sessions
One-on-one personal training sessions designed to meet the specific postural and physical fitness needs of the individual client. An initial evaluation is completed with identification of postural and gait-related issues. Sessions include use of the Pilates studio apparatus in addition to instruction for a "homework" program.
Joseph Pilates intended for his apparatus to be an integral part of his Method of Physical and Mental Conditioning. Training on classical Pilates apparatus enhances ones technique, heightens body awareness, builds strength and increases flexibility more readily than mat exercises alone. When performing mat exercises resistance is created by gravity and body weight. Pilates apparatus training provides additional resistance through springs and framing (support) for the body. In addition, as one progresses, apparatus training can provide a means of further challenge by allowing the exercises to be performed in different planes of movement.
