Pilates

If it’s easy, it’s probably not Pilates.

A system of movement and strengthening, Pilates promotes full breath control, healthy joint articulation and stability in the important core muscles of the body. Platinum Yoga offers private or group sessions that demand concentration and focused attention. You’ll get a great workout, personalized attention, and reap the benefits of a conscientious mind-body activity.

Why Pilates instead of Yoga?

Many yoga classes are flexible in routine. Postures, sequences and variations can be combined into tens of thousands of routines to create a class. So it will be up to the style of yoga you practice and the teacher guiding you to decide what’s on the agenda. Pilates classes are a little more structured. Because of this, you will more likely know what to expect when you walk into the door of a pilates class than in a yoga class.

Even if you practice yoga or exercise regularly, Pilates takes you to a whole new level by working your core muscles – the deep abdominal muscles that support the spine. This is essential for strength and flexibility. In fact, Pilates practice has shown tremendous results in providing relief from chronic back pain where other methods have failed.
