Pilates Principles

Rhythm & Breathing

Breathing is the deep, focused inhaling and exhaling that initiates motion within a specific exercise and has a specific rhythm attached to it.
 

Control & Concentration

Control and precision are direct by-products of the strong mind-body connection developed by proper breathing and concentration.
 

Centered & Balanced

All movement radiates outward from the center in Pilates and the ultimate goal of Pilates is to create an even and balanced musculature.
 

Relaxation & Whole Body Movement

An essential but often under emphasized principle of Pilates is Relaxation. It goes without saying that learning to release unnecessary tension in our bodies helps us to find ease and flow in movement and in the rest of our lives.
