Pilates

Momentum-Wellness-Lethbridge-Fitness-Coaching-Pilates-Reformer

Pilates is an empowering system of movement and exercise created and developed by German-born athlete Joseph Hubertus Pilates. His innovative method educates, re-patterns, realigns and balances your body. It teaches body awareness, good posture, deep stability core strengthening, quality over quantity, and presence to the moment.

Pilates was designed to help develop a whole functional body that gives you the natural ability to live a life that can perform everyday activities with ease and perfection.

Joe’s exercise method focuses on developing a solid deep core connection with the movement, a connection to your breath, a balance of the right and left side of the body, and training each muscle uniformly, which gives the muscles equal strength to flexibility.

Pilates is a true transformation because you “get to” slow down, drop inward, and connect to what best serves you. This powerful method gifts you the opportunity to quiet the mind through breath and concentration so you can continuously check into YOU.

Pilates asks you to be kind and compassionate as you move through your workout. You’re asked to perform each exercise with precision and only produce the number of receptions that are executed in good form. This is why Pilates is so transformational. Practising good form and only doing what best serves your body will give you incredible sustaining results. Pilates differs from traditional forms of fitness, “no pain, no gain,” whereas Pilates focuses on “no pain, lots of gains.”
