About Pilates + Yoga

Pilates gets its name from Joseph Pilates, a German physical trainer who invented the mind-body exercise in the early 20th century. Pilates aims to strengthen muscles and core while working out the rest of the body. There are two types of Pilates: mat + reformer. Mat classes are recommended for beginners. The Pilates reformer is a resistance-based machine that uses a series of springs and pulleys to customize exercises for the user.

Yoga is an ancient discipline from India with Hindu roots that focuses on breathing, meditation, and posture. One of the many beautiful aspects of yoga is that people of all shapes and sizes can practice it.
