PILATES

Pilates is a total body workout that focuses on initiating every movement from the center of your body and then spreads it to the limbs. This discipline originally called Contrology from its founder and our mentor Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), has been helping dancers, boxers, sports people, celebrities and countless others who have experienced this method correctly taught.
