Pilates Studio (by appointment only)
Pilates (English pronunciation: /pɨˈlɑːtiːz/) – The urban Lair mind-body exercise build on the principles of the late Joseph H. Pilates’ work by incorporating modern knowledge about the body. Whether you’re working one–on–one in a rehabilitative setting or in a small group, the main aim of Pilates remains the same: optimal musculoskeletal performance – strength, flexibility and endurance – without risking injury or building bulk. With a focus on core stability, including pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization, neutral alignment and breathing, Pilates also helps restore the natural curves of the spine, relieve tension and enhance self-confidence.
The result: a balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels revitalized and moves with ease – whether a rehabilitation patient or elite athlete – we invite you to experience the Pilates method at our studio in South End Racquet and Health Club.
