  • What is Pilates?
    Pilates is a mind-body exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. It focuses on strengthening the core muscles, improving flexibility, and enhancing overall body awareness through controlled movements and breath work.
  • What should I wear to a Pilates class?
    Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing that allows for ease of movement. Avoid overly loose clothing that may get in the way during exercises. Socks with grips are recommended for hygiene and stability, especially for reformer Pilates classes.

  • What is the difference between mat Pilates and reformer Pilates?

Many physical therapists incorporate Pilates exercises into their rehabilitation programs due to its focus on core strength, stability, and controlled movements.
