HOW IS PILATES DIFFERENT FROM YOGA?
While both Pilates and Yoga emphasize the mind-body connection and can lengthen and strengthen the body, Pilates takes you through various flowing movements versus the static posture of Yoga. This makes it more of a systemic form of exercise because of the resistance of the Pilates equipment. However, Yoga can be a fabulous compliment to your fitness routine when taken in conjunction with your Pilates sessions.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND I TAKE EACH WEEK?
Depending on your individual needs or goals, 1-3 sessions per week is usually recommended. If needed, I will also give you movement "homework" to do in between sessions to keep you on track.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS THAT I WOULD EXPECT WHEN DOING PILATES?
Pilates will increase your strength, flexibility, balance, posture and mind-body connection while decreasing your body mass index when combined with other aerobic activities and dietary changes.
