Pilates 

Pilates is an innovative mind-body system of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s to transform the way your body functions in everyday activities. Pilates builds strength, core stability, balance, flexibility, proprioception and mental focus. 

Part of what differentiates Pilates from other types of workouts is the quality of movement over quantity of movement, proper alignment and working from the inside-out principle.
