Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body and what better way to do this than Pilates.
The Pilates method is a body conditioning exercise therapy, targeting the deep postural muscles to achieve core stability and strength with improved muscle balance. It involves the realignment of the spine to its optimum position with gentle stretching and strengthening movements.
