Pilates at Peak
Pilates at PEAK
Pilates is a system of exercises using core strength integrating the whole body while using a reformer, mat or other apparatus to gently and efficiently work the muscles of the body. These exercises have a broad application for people of all ages and fitness abilities.
Joseph Pilates created his methodology in the early 1920’s. During his lifetime this method of exercise was called Contrology. It then became known as the Pilates Method after his death in 1967. The roots of the technique are immersed in the philosophy and movement patterns designed by Joseph Pilates over 100 years ago. Today his core method is still taught, as well as an evolved form integrating modern anatomical and bio-mechanical thinking by skilled instructors. The Pilates Method is utilized in studios, health clubs and rehabilitation clinics.
Peak Rehabilitation is now offering “Pilates at Peak” at both the Evans and downtown location.
