Did you know Pilates was original named “Contrology” by creator #joesphpilates? He believed, so fervently, in the benefits of complete mind control over body. Being precise and #mindful in your movements is what counts and it’s what we practice here at PCS.
“A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.” -Joseph Pilates (I don’t know about you, but 😳🤯).
At the fundamental level, our hope is to help you find a better connection to your body, your breath and your movements, both, inside and outside the studio. As you progress through the method, your control will become more effortless/automatic allowing you to pick up the pace, perhaps add resistance or challenge yourself with more coordination.
We often hear “pilates feels too easy...” at first. “I’m used to heavier weight, faster pace and bigger movements.” You must walk before you run- master the fundamentals and gain the benefits in every aspect of your life. If you want to change your body- you have to change your habits. Who agrees? 🙋♀️
