Pilates is different from yoga in several subtle and not so subtle ways. One not so subtle example are the reformers. Some people may think they look like torture devices, but believe me, the reformer is an excellent teacher and will get your body to move effortlessly, which is the whole goal of Pilates. Pilates wants every movement to be with ease. No grunting, no movements that compress the spine or cause the belly to "pooch" out, neck to jut out, or shoulders to round forward.
Pilates wants to teach ALL the muscles of the body to engage and support the body, not segment the body, which is why trainers, chiropractors, therapists, and doctors are encouraging more of their clients to seek qualified Pilates instructors. If your muscles are integrated and supporting all the bone structures of the body, you will MOVE WELL and decrease the risks of injuries, surgeries, and other hassles like pain or numbness! Solo, Duo, or Trio Reformer Sessions are available by appointment. Don't forget to check out the testimonies to read how others have benefited.
