Life with Pilates

Joseph Pilates once said to be in control of your body, not at it's mercy. This inspires us to aim to interconnect the body and mind to work together. As a modern method emerging in the 20th century, pilates focuses on balancing these aspects with its physical and respiratory excercises. The strenghthening, toning and stretching of your muscles and spine is no easy feat, but the practice of pilates makes it possible to achieve it.

This discipline is often used to treat and prevent existing ailments, as a form of rehabilitation and even to fix your posture.
