Pilates benefits are numerous and include:
- Relief of pain due to muscle imbalance.
- Improved posture and bio-mechanical function.
- Increased functional strength and flexibility.
- Enhanced body-mind awareness and performance.
- Greater sense of well-being and energy.
- Faster recovery from pregnancy and childbirth.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
There is free parking in the lot behind our studio.
