Proper movement through visual and verbal cues, mental focus and proper breathing techniques help our clients to develop their body/mind awareness, and to guide them toward an understanding of how the body functions in daily life, which can help to improve the overall quality of life for many years to come.
When one part of the body is weak or misaligned, the body tends to overdevelop other parts to compensate. These imbalances, often the result of repetitive motions or habitual postures, frequently result in injury and pain. At the Energy Within we take pride in providing exercise training that you will feel even after you go home. Our Pilates classes are structured to strengthen the stabilizing muscles responsible for bringing your muscular and skeletal structures into balance, relieving pain caused by excessive sitting, computer use, repetitive lifting or long periods of standing without rest.
“Rachel (our head instructor) is the best! At first I was not a big fan of Pilates, but many of my friends were telling me how it “contoured” their body and helped strengthen their core, so I gave it a try. Now, I’m hooked! It has helped my posture, my mood as well as my tennis game! Thank you, Rachel!”
