What is Pilates?

Pilates improves the mind, body and soul. It is for every body because it not only exercises the muscles it corrects the muscle firing patterns in concert with the nervous system and corrects any negative postural adaptations.

The focus required by Pilates movement creates a more disciplined mind. Accessing forgotten or under used muscles is part of every Pilates exercise. When you’re more comfortable with these new muscles your body awareness increases exponentially, it is inevitable.

A deeper connection with your physical body and your mindful movement brings happiness to your soul. Anytime you do something for the self that takes you closer to wholeness your soul will celebrate. It could be those endorphins kicking in, but Pilates gives you an inner grace and whole body connection that is lacking in other exercise.

Work with Kimberly Parker

She says:

“No matter what injury one has physical movement can be a regular practice in one’s life.”

Her ongoing movement training and education has made it possible for her to handle a multitude of conditions: scoliosis, disc injuries, tendinitis, arthritis, loss of balance, sport specific injuries and golf conditioning.
