Pilates

Based on the work of Joseph H. Pilates, the Pilates Method of exercise and rehabilitation incorporates muscle control, flexibility, coordination, strength and tone through physical and mental conditioning. Pilates integrates the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle and emphasizes proper breathing.  With the correct spine and pelvic alignment, and smooth flowing movement, patients and clients are able to access each part of the body individually.

Correct execution of these exercises improves alignment and posture, increases body awareness and flexibility while contributing to the  improved muscular symmetry and  balance so many people need for injury prevention, recovery from injury and improved performance.  At PHOENIX (St. Mary's only), Pilates is the perfect complement to our physical therapy services.  The Pilates method emphasizes precisely controlled movements strengthening the upper and lower extremities while integrating the deep core, abdominal and back muscles.

Practiced faithfully, Pilates yields numerous benefits:

  • Increased lung capacity and circulation through deep, healthy breathing which is a primary focus of this work.
  • Integrated strength and flexibility, particularly of the deep core, abdomen and back muscles; mind-body coordination; balance and body awareness; all of which are key components in an effective Pilates program.
  • Improved posture, balance, and core strength are achieved through a variety of different positions and challenges to the body.
  • Improved bone density and joint health are an added benefit as Pilates is suitable for all ages and all fitness levels.
