Carlsbad Pilates


What is Pilates?
We hear this many times. Pilates is a form of exercise that emphasizes proper posture, flexibility, core and total body strengthening. It is considered a mind-body form of exercise that teaches body and movement awareness that can transfer to other aspects of life e.g. performing daily activities to improving sport performance. The exercises are either performed on a mat or on various forms of equipment e.g. the reformer, chair, trap table, barrel.

“We have heard many people say they are afraid of pilates for various reasons…Our bodies literally need movement. Pilates is movement…done with precision, good alignment and mindfulness. We teach people how to be better movers that will carry over into one’s daily life. Pilates will make you aware of how you sit, stand, walk, bend, lift, carry, push & pull. Yes, you can do Pilates.”

Pilates was a man before being called a method of exercise. Created by Joseph Pilates, a pioneer of modern fitness and rehabilitation who lived to be 83 years old. To learn more about this amazing individual and fascinating life story click here.
