Pilates is known for sculpting long, lean muscles and teaching individuals to find true support from their deep core. It is the perfect marriage of stability and mobility work, increasing both flexibility + strength.
With the principle of targeting the smallest stabilizing muscles, you'll work deeply and efficiently, instead of solely focusing on superficial muscle groups. This means, you may feel muscles that you never knew you had!
"Since starting Pilates, my core strength, posture, range of motion, and muscle tone has drastically improved. Pilates teaches you to initiate and anchor movement using deep core muscles, which has helped me achieve stronger, more balanced overall fitness and avoid injury. Having taken mat and reformer classes with Sonja, I can attest to her expertise, thoughtfulness, and dedication to helping me realize my fitness goals. She is a true joy to work with. Pilates is the perfect complement to my training and I highly recommend it to anyone."
Each class and session focuses on alignment to increase functionality and posture. Our Pilates workouts can be modified to suit people of every fitness and wellness background.
With special care regarding alignment of the spine, Pilates is perfect for those with back pain, scoliosis, or injury. We also offer sessions for pre + postnatal clients.
