About Jess

About Pilates

The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is the art of strength, stretch and control. Legendary physical trainer Joseph Pilates developed this unique exercise program in the 1920’s. Pilates classes target core muscles providing a full mind-body conditioning system with innumerable benefits including:


  • Improved Posture/ Alignment

  • Reduced Stress/ Tension

  • Improved Balance/ Coordination

  • Reduced Lower Back Pain

  • Increased Flexibility

  • Injury Prevention/ Rehabilitation

  • Grace and Ease in Everyday Activities


Its six principles -- concentration, control, centering, precision, breath, and flow -- train the body to move efficiently with minimal impact on the joints. The balance between strength and flexibility creates a healthy, symmetrical workout for all muscle groups resulting in a leaner, more balanced, and stronger body.
