PILATES is a form of exercise created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s based on his insight into the power of connecting the mind, body and the breath. Pilates consists of series of movements that stretch and strengthen muscles throughout the body while improving body alignment, awareness and balance. Pilates aims to correct the posture by strengthening the weak muscles and lengthening the overused muscles. The result is a balanced body which is strong, toned and healthy.
GYROTONIC® methodology allows users to stretch and strengthen muscles, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. These exercises are synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, thus enhancing aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promoting neuro-muscular rejuvenation.
GYROKINESIS® exercises allow one to work on the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as all other joint articulation. This approach systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. These movements stimulate the body’s internal organs while different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated along with the movements.
TRX® SUSPENSION TRAINING is a new category of exercise for persons of all abilities that leverages one’s own bodyweight and gravity to develop strength, balance, flexibility and joint stability simultaneously.
PHYSIOTHERAPY is the process by which ill, injured or disabled people are helped to recover their movement and function to full potential. Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach, involving the patient in their own care.
