LIVE FIT CLASSES
Pilates and Stretching
Pilates uses controlled movements, primarily focused in your “core” (a term for your torso) to build body strength, flexibility and endurance. It has the power to dramatically transform the way your body looks and feels.
Pilates is a great alternative for any sort of muscle toning you’re looking to accomplish and is powerful in its effectiveness at targeting your entire body in a single workout.
The PILATES method is a targeted physical-mental training that approaches fitness of the body in its entirety. Based on the work of Joseph Pilates, who called his method ‘Contrology’, it takes a holistic approach in exercising and developing the core muscles of the body. This wholeness respects each individual's individual anatomy, strengths and limitations, both in the preventive and the rehabilitative areas and provides a comprehensive plan, tailored to the individual’s needs.
Our instructors have all completed their studies at PILATESwiss. The PILATESwiss Visceral approach to Pilates and Yoga, a highly efficient way to respect the functional organ and diaphragm alignment is what you will experience in at Live Fit Studio.
PILATESwiss programs are both PMA Pilates method alliance and Yoga Alliance recognized.
