After Joe passed away in 1967 Contrology was renamed Pilates. Joe believed that by moving with control, following a specific order of exercises and using your breath properly you could rid yourself of chronic pain and instabilities. A steady prectice of Pilates improves every functional aspect your life.
Pilates is similar to yoga with a focus on each movement coming from the core or abdominal region. Students of the method build strength and develop control and endurance in the body. The exercise system uses body weight and equipment springs for resistance to engage your entire body during a session. The system utilizes a variety of equipment, such as the Pilates Reformer, Cadillac, Ladder Barrel, High Chair, and Wunda Chair. The pieces of apparatus help clients improve their 4 S’s: Strength, Stability, Stretch and Stamina.
