We have created a beautiful environment where you can leave the world outside and focus on yourself for the duration of the session. Time in the studio should be focused around learning about ourselves and our bodies, with the aim to have the best health and well-being that we can. It should be fun and at the end of each session you should have learned something new about yourself and your body. We have changing facilities, a toilet, and a sauna to enjoy, free of charge!
Our sessions follow the 6 basic principles of Pilates:
Centering: Physically bringing the focus to the center of the body, the area between the lower ribs and pubic bone. Energetically, Pilates exercises are sourced from center.
Concentration: If one brings full attention to the exercise and does it with full commitment, maximum value will be obtained from each movement.
Control: Every Pilates exercise is done with complete muscular control. No body part is left to its own devices.
Precision: In Pilates, awareness is sustained throughout each movement. There is an appropriate placement/alignment relative to other body parts, and trajectory for each part of the body.
Breath: The emphasis is using a very full breath in every exercise. The aim is to use a full lateral breath to strongly pump the air fully in and out of the body. Most Pilates exercises coordinate with the breath, and using the breath properly is an integral part of Pilates.
Flow: Pilates is done in a flowing manner. Fluidity, grace, and ease are goals applied to all exercises. The energy of an exercise connects all body parts and flows through the body in an even way.
