Pilates with Purpose is a fully equipped Classical Pilates studio in the heart of Woodstock, NB.
To quote Joseph Pilates, we are passionate about helping you ‘return to life’. Yes, Joseph Pilates was a real person! We follow closely the Classical Pilates Method as it has been passed down from elders who studied with Joe. Your life is hectic, but your Pilates class shouldn't be. Challenging, yes; hectic, no! We customize your private session or small group class to meet the needs of your body on that day.
"Be in control of your body and not at its mercy" - Joseph Pilates
What is Pilates Anyway?
"Pilates exercises as a whole develop strong abdominal, back, butt and deep postural muscles to support skeletal system and act as what Pilates called the 'powerhouse' of the body. The Pilates method works to strengthen the center, lengthen the spine, increase body awareness, build muscle tone and gain flexibility. The Pilates Method is also an excellent rehabilitation system for back, knee, hip, shoulder, and repetitive stress injuries. Pilates addresses the body as a whole, correcting the body's asymmetries and chronic weaknesses to prevent re-injury and bring the body back into balance." - Ellie Herman of Ellie Herman Pilates NYC
Simply put - Pilates is a big 'thank you' to your body for all it does for you.
What does this mean for you?
We believe Pilates can be right for EVERY body. Pilates is natural movement that encourages concentration with a focus on breath, while strengthening and balancing the whole body by targeting those lesser used muscles. The Pilates method is designed for beginner to advanced bodies. From just off the couch to the highest level of athlete, you can benefit from incorporating Pilates into your routine. The key is consistency and persistence to feel the benefits.
Whether you want to improve your golf game, ease body aches, strengthen the core, not pee your pants when you cough, sneeze and jump (ladies we know there are a few of you out there!), or simply be more active, there is a Pilates session that is right for you.
