At BE Pilates we embrace the Pilates exercise techniques first developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. The Pilates Method emphasizes correct breathing and controllled low-impact strengthening which results in muscles that are longer, stronger, balanced and more flexible. It is a mind body workout designed to strengthen abdominal and back muscles, align the spine, improve flexibility and create balance and presence like no other exercise.
