Pilates is a training method created by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967) and is approximately 100 years old. Mr. Pilates used to say "The basis of the construction of the method of physical conditioning is a body trained and actively controlled through the mind". Thus the main purpose of this method is to control the body through the mind. And by giving such a great emphasis to this necessary control, the method was initially called Contrology.
Pilates consists of a set of low-intensity and low-repetition exercises that allow us to achieve physical and emotional well-being through 7 principles: concentration, breathing, core activation, precision, movement control, fluidity and routine.
The exercises strengthen and lengthen the body, improve posture and flexibility, assist in joint mobility and work self-control and breathing. In addition to these benefits they help to improve body awareness. That's why, every day, more people surrender to the Pilates method!
Anyone can practice Pilates, and therefore we see a great diversity of practitioners, from healthy people, athletes, people with musculoskeletal disorders to pregnant women, among others.
At Physiokinesis we decided to combine the benefits of Pilates with Physical Therapy! Here classes will be given by an experienced physiotherapist and in groups of 2 to 3 people or in personalized training. This way your training will be safer and according to your needs.
