"Change happens through movement, and movement heals" Joseph Pilates
The Pilates Method is a system of movement exercises invented by German athlete Joseph H. Pilates in the beginning of 20th century. It’s main focus is on the core postural and deep abdominal muscles to support the spine and to align the body. Working on specifically designed apparatus, this technique uses the resistance/control of the springs to strengthen, stretch and balance the body. Classical Pilates is an efficient method to recover from and prevent injury, increase joint range of motion, circulation, improve posture, coordination and body awareness.
Pilates is ideal for dancers, athletes and musicians to improve technique and performance and for absolute beginners, Prenatal and Postnatal, young and old to develop functional fitness for daily life.
I was taught the Authentic Pilates method at "The Pilates Studio" - (International Certification Center), run by my teachers Marjoerie Oron and Jane Poerwoatmodjo. There I received my certification from world-renowned teachers Sari Mejia-Santo and legendary Romana Kryzanowska - protégé of Joseph H. Pilates himself. They continue his legacy and the pure Pilates method until today and I'm honoured to have had an oportunity to study with them.
