Description of classes:.
The Pilates method includes a set of exercises that engage not only the body, but also the mind, as they require a great deal of concentration. The workout, activating all muscle fibers while stretching and lengthening the body, strengthens weakened muscle groups. Repeated on a regular basis-with key principles-relieves back pain. Exercises focus primarily on activating little-used abdominal muscles, those deeper in the body and even muscle tone throughout the body. These elements shape correct posture. Movements become gentle and soft, giving wonderful flexibility, elegance and modeling a slimmer silhouette. We restore balance, harmony, flexibility and grace to our bodies. We learn to consciously obtain elongation in our joints, thus improving their mobility, which often results in the cessation of painful conditions. Our awareness, related to correct posture, improves our functioning and helps us control ourselves on a daily basis. With the right knowledge, it is possible to "exercise" under any circumstances; even while standing in line, driving a car or trying to change our daily habits so that they begin to work in our favor, providing us with well-being, improved fitness and often the cessation of painful conditions..
