Pilates is an exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and improve overall health. Exercises are performed on a mat and on specially designed equipment - the reformer, tower, cadillac, and chair. The Pilates system includes exercises for every part of the body and applications for every kind of activity. It emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength, muscle balance and endurance.
In her own experience, Kathleen found an even deeper appreciation for Pilates as it later became an integral part of her rehabilitation from a back injury. Trained in classical Pilates through Balanced Body®, she is passionate in helping clients achieve strength and stability.
We are all meant to live our lives to the fullest - whether that means enjoying the great outdoors, playing sports, exercising for health, or even just being able to spend time with loved ones. Individualized training can keep you on track post-rehab of an injury, prevent an old injury from coming back, or simply help keep you in a healthy lifestyle to enjoy what matters most.
