Ongoing Pilates Classes at the Haven! An intelligent Exercise System Teaching Fluidity of Motion.from Within. .

Recommended Posts

It's no surprise that when Joseph Pilates moved to the US in the late 1920's and opened his studio in NYC, his method was immediately embraced by the Professional Dance Community...
The Pilates Exercise System provides a great work-out simultaneously working on many levels. Through awareness and concentration practitioners move slowly, steadily and smoothly, emphasizing precision of form and total control. Years ahead of its time, the Pilates system not only strengthens the body/mind connection, but enhances & stimulates the coordination of the central nervous system. Joseph Pilates designed his exercise method to strengthen his students' intelligence, turning- on a greater number of cells/receptors of the brain and central nervous system- not only during, but following the execution of his exercises.
Basic Pilates highlights the fundamental movements of Classical Pilates; specifically strengthening the lower back and abdominal muscles, instructing correct posture through body-awareness & correct alignment, and strengthening and adding flexibility to the skeletal.muscles and the joints. It also highlights the necessity of developing and maintaining  optimal balance.
As we age, doesn't it make sense to do whatever we can to enjoy our lives and live most optimally? Isn't our health and bodily- ease our highest priority? 
Come to the Haven - Do Pilates! Get back to basics and take greater responsibility for your Health and Well-being. You'll be Grateful You Did!
