Pilates is a system of exercise created by Joseph Pilates inspired by body weight calisthenics and helping injured individuals maintain strength while their body heals. He later designed several Pilates machines to help individuals grow their strength, body awareness, and control.

The Joseph Pilates method, which he termed Contrology, was developed in the 1910s and 1920s through his experience working with soldiers, dancers, and boxers. He was influenced by modern medical philosophy of the time in areas of hydrotherapy, trigger point therapy, and breath work. He moved to New York City in the 1920s and set up his studio in Hell’s Kitchen where he taught for the next four decades, refining his method and cementing a long-lasting popularity for Pilates that continues to thrive and help people from all walks of life and ability levels live their healthiest life.

Our Pilates sessions take place on Pilates reformers and Pilates towers. These machines allow for increased challenges and specificity to body movements. It also allows many modifications to be made for injuries or conditions. 

Our group classes are no more than 6 people so there is lots of attention but less personalized attention than a private or duet session, privates and duets can move at your pace or focus on specific concerns or conditions. 

Wear something comfortable you can move in. Socks with rubber grips are suggested but not required

Pilates has been shown to help with a number of physical conditions and rehabilitation of injury, as well as help to improve balance, coordination, strength, and body awareness.
