Power Up Your Powerhouse
Developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates, Pilates is a method of exercise designed to tone and lengthen muscles and improve balance, flexibility, and posture while developing a strong core, otherwise known as your "Powerhouse". While Pilates workouts used to only be taught in a dedicated studio, it’s now on the class menus of many community centres, gyms, and spas around the world. Since its inception, Pilates exercises have grown to become one of the most popular forms of fitness around the globe, and for good reason. Pilates is perfect if you want to achieve a lean, toned ballerina's body! Popular varieties include mat-based classes and Reformer classes, held on machines.
