Pilates

Posted March 1, 2015 | by Tom Connolly

Pilates is a method of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s that strengthens and tones the entire body. The movements are flowing, precise, energizing, and challenging, and rely on a “mind-body” connection. It’s this mind-body connection that makes pilates effective and defines what pilates truly is.

Gyrotonic

Posted March 1, 2015 | by Tom Connolly

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM was conceived by Juliu Horvath using key principles of gymnastics, swimming, ballet, and yoga, tai chi and dance which mobilize and articulate the joints through a series of circular, articulated and elongating movements.
