Best Pilates NYC

As we’ve already stated, your overall health & level of physical fitness is extremely important to your happiness. Yes, maintaining a strong body is a huge part of this equation, but so is maintaining a similarly strong MIND! So, what can we offer that will strengthen both your body as well as your mind?


Pilates is often referred to as the “intelligent workout”, and that is because Joseph Pilates – the creator of the exercise method which bears his name – devoted his life to studying the human body and demonstrated the benefits of “a perfect balance of body and mind”.

Pilates – a system of strengthening and stretching exercises – employs movements which focus on your efforts on fortifying the deeper core stabilizing muscles of your body. This is extremely beneficial because these are THE muscles responsible for protecting the your spine as well as other key parts of your body. By strengthening these muscles, you will ensure that your body will enjoy a safe and protected postural alignment in the face of whatever your day-to-day life throws at you!

The best part of all this is… ANYBODY can take Pilates classes !!

There is no age limit when it comes to improving your health and fitness levels. In fact, many different types of people – all with varying levels of fitness – who have integrated Pilates into their lives have routinely seen marked improvements in their general range of motion, circulation, flexibility, posture, and core abdominal strength. Pilates has also been known to decrease neck, back, and joint pain!

All of this goes hand in hand with what we do here at Pilates Midtown East.
