Pilates, an exercise system developed in Germany 1920’s by Joseph Pilates, has been shown to alleviate low back pain and gain long lean muscles. Joseph Pilates believed that mental and physical health were interdependent of each other. He wanted a system to strengthen the human mind and body. The Mayo Clinic has shown Pilates builds strength in one’s core muscles leading to improved balance for better posture and flexibility. The original six core principles of Pilates were outlined in 1980. They are concentration, control, center, flow, precision, and breathing. The Pilates taught today are based on up to nine principles.
Soulful Pilates will offer Pilates Sports Center Teacher Training Program, an internationally recognized program where students will learn both the classical and progressive approach to Pilates. This contemporary approach to the method takes the essence of the original classical Pilates and incorporates it with today’s knowledge and principals.
