What is Pilates?

About the studio

Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates, who designed a system of exercise during the First World War with the proposal to improve the rehabilitation program for the many returning veterans. He developed precise movements emphasizing control and form to aid the injured soldiers in regaining their health by strengthening, stretching, and stabilizing key muscles. Pilates created “The Pilates Principles” to condition the entire body: proper alignment, centering, concentration, control, precision, breathing, and flowing movement.

“I enjoyed my Pilates sessions with Dantzel very much. She is always cheerful and professional. She taught me so much about how to move and how to build strength and muscle memory. I was able to do so many things I couldn’t do before taking her classes. The sessions definitely helped me be more toned, more agile, and have less hip pain. Dantzel really understands how to teach you exactly what you need. Her knowledge of muscles and bones and how they all interact is extensive. She could watch me do an exercise and tell me exactly what to do so it would bring the greatest benefit. She came up with a different routine for me every session. She managed to get me to try things that seemed scary at first but ended up being the perfect exercise for me.”
