Pilates is a full body workout that engages all muscle groups. It focuses on strengthening the body's muscles uniformly rather than bulking and over developing isolated muscle groups. By developing muscles uniformly, you become more flexible & more aligned.
They are endless! In short, you can expect overall toning and slimming of your body, in addition to increased strength and flexibility - even in just a short amount of time!
Your Pilates practice will leave you feeling in control, energized and with a clear mind. and you'll notice how this translates to other aspects of your life.
What can Pilates do for your body?
Deanna's very first Pilates class was taken in a classroom. As a high-schooler self-conscious about her body, her mom suggested she try Pilates for its challenging yet simple nature. She loved it, but it was harder than she thought! With almost immediate results, the challenge was well worth it. Her muscles toned without bulking, flexibility increased and she had more energy. Today, it remains the only practice that makes her feel strong, mentally and physically.
Deanna loves being part of an inclusive, accepting community of people of all shapes and sizes, striving towards self-love. Deanna believes whether you’re a true beginner or experienced in the practice you can find challenge, strength & confidence in yourself.
