Private Pilates Classes in Downtown Vancouver

So what is Pilates? Is it like yoga? Is it a workout? Am I going to sweat? Pilates is all of these things and more! It can either take place on a mat or on a pilates reformer. Pilates is a full body, low-impact workout that is highly focused and concentrates on strengthening the body with an emphasis on core strength. But core strength does not mean sit-ups. Core strength refers to the small muscles that support the spine, the pelvis, the hips, the shoulder girdles, the thorax (ribcage), the head and neck. It is the muscular support system that provides stability so your body can move smoothly while avoiding joint compression and tendon strain. You will not sweat in the sense of a spin class or hot yoga session. But you will raise your inner heat as you fire up your core. Pilates is similar to Yoga with its focuses on posture, balance, breath and flexibility, but it hones in on alignment in a more specific way.
