The principle of Pilates is to develop the body and mind uniformly by combining muscle stabilization and concentration with slow, controlled movements. The method is centered on the concepts of balance, breath, centered concentration, control, movement flow and precision. By strengthening the deep structures of the body using light resistance, and then progressing to more complex movements, you can begin to identify muscle imbalances and learn to correct these movements. Whether you are an athlete, an older adult looking to maintain mobility or recovering from an injury, Pilates is beneficial to you!
Let one of our qualified Pilates instructors guide you through a private session to help you reach your fitness goals. We offer flexible times, 30, 45 and 60 minute sessions, to help you gain core strength, increased mobility and flexibility while improving balance and overall strength.
The Pilates Group Equipment classes at Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center offer exercise techniques that focus on flexibility, posture and abdominal strength in a group setting. Classes are held in the Group Pilates Equipment studio unless otherwise noted and have a maximum of 4 participants per class.
Members new to Pilates Group Equipment Classes should attend a Beginner’s class or complete a minimum of one private session with a Pilates instructor for evaluation. You may call ahead to save your spot.
