Pilates Classes

Pilates is a low-impact exercise that’s excellent for older adults and active seniors. Because it’s a mind-body exercise, pilates can help decrease chronic pain, reduce stress, blood pressure and heart rate and improve mood.

Our Pilates classes build coordination, improve posture, joint mobility and flexibility and can sometimes help relieve physical pain, including back pain. Practicing Pilates consistently provides a fantastic total body workout that’s suitable for any fitness level and promotes healthy aging routines and a better quality of life through regular physical activity.
