Aqua Pilates Seminar READ MORE

“When all your muscles are properly developed, you will, as a matter of course, perform your work with minimum effort and maximum pleasure.”

Joseph H. Pilates

Pilates by itself is an excellent workout. Taking Pilates into the water, takes Pilates to another level altogether.
Emphasis is placed on developing a strong core and is focused around doing a few different movements.

When Aqua Pilates is used, focus points become exaggerated,

resulting in a stronger workout.

The traditional Pilates principles are applied in Aqua Pilates. However Aqua Pilates is easier on your joints while the water increases the resistance of the moves, enhancing the benefits to your muscles.
