What IS PILATES?
Pilates is a mind-body exercise method that integrates strength, stretch, and control. Focusing on your Powerhouse or core, Pilates will strengthen your abs, lower back, and glutes so you can better support your spine during your workouts and everyday activities. Pilates exercises stretch and strengthen the muscles around your spine, giving you a strong, flexible, and pain-free back.
Pilates also focuses on symmetry, helping you correct any muscle imbalances that may be causing pain. Pilates teaches you how to move and exercise efficiently and safely, and helps to protect your spine for life.
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900's, and consists of over 500 exercises that had endured in effectiveness since its original development. It includes matwork and a variety of exercises on specialized equipment.
All Pilates work is no-impact and safe on your joints. Pilates is a great option if you are rehabilitating an injury and cannot return to full workouts yet. It is also a great complement to your regular exercise program, helping you to learn how to control your muscles and restore flexibility. Pilates can help you prevent future injuries and improve your performance in other workouts, dance, or sports.
Pilates emphasizes deep breathing, making it great for reducing stress and revitalizing your energy. Deep breathing also strengthens the muscles around your lungs that enable you breathe to your full capacity, which helps your muscles work optimally and can improve respiratory conditions such as asthma.
With its focus on core strength and alignment throughout the body Pilates will give you a strong center that will help you stand taller and leaner, get out of pain, balance your body, and perform at your best.

WHAT GABBI'S PILATES CLIENTS
"After one Pilates session with Gabbi, I was hooked and so thankful for the one-on-one opportunity to learn the fundamentals - and finally find a workout that was centering. I was instantly far more in tune with my body than I had been in years - drawing in my abs, closing my ribcage and tucking my tailbone to improve my posture. My thighs burned from Reformer sessions and my plank started to look less like a hammock and more, well, plank-like. I absolutely love the measured, isotonic movement of Pilates, and know I am getting stronger.
What I've also come to learn through my Pilates experience is that the teacher/student relationship is critical. I lucked out in finding a nurturing, highly professional and extremely talented instructor in Gabbi. "
