Pilates exercises focus on developing strong postural muscles or “core” strength. The core includes the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles surrounding the spine. The core muscles are challenged to hold proper placement of the trunk, pelvis, and shoulder girdle within a variety movements of the entire body.



Pilates exercises target several muscle groups at once in smooth, continuous movements that challenge balance and coordination. With correct technique, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns of motion. This is of utmost importance for injury prevention, sports performance, good posture and overall health.



When the core posture muscles are weak, stronger movement muscles are recruited and take over. The result can be unhealthy posture and movement patterns.Pilates exercises train the core to do its job so the movers can go back to doing theirs. You actually learn which muscles to recruit for stable posture and movement.

When we train the same muscle patterns repetitively, the weak muscles tend to get weaker and strong muscles tend to get stronger. Over time we create a muscular imbalance – a primary cause of injury and chronic back pain. Pilates conditions the whole body from your head to your toes. Balanced musculature allows you to enjoy what you love with improved performance and less chance of injury.



More conventional or traditional workouts tend to build short, bulky muscles -the type most prone to injury. Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with both strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.



In Pilates the quality of movement is valued over quantity of repetitions. Quality movement requires correct muscle recruitment and tension. Proper breathing is essential to perform quality movements with maximum power and efficiency without clenching and straining muscles.

  • I absolutely LOVED my private class with Dari!  My expectations were met and surpassed! We did a private focusing on some basics on the reformer and Dari was so great at explaining alignment as well as correct form.  She is VERY knowledgeable.  I was impressed with how comfortable she made me feel.  I felt so great afterward!  I love that Pilates focuses so much on proper alignment and strength of the muscles.  Such a great low impact workout, I highly recommend it!
