Pilates

The Pilates Method was originally developed for the purpose of training dancers; however, over the years it has evolved to meet the exercise needs of the general public. Pilates is unique to the world of exercise as it combines stretching and strengthening to elongate musculature and enhance the “long, lean” look. The emphasis on core strengthening is sure to give you the abs you always wanted, but it does not have to stop there. Pilates conditions the entire body through smooth, safe, linear movement patterns that incorporate many muscle groups simultaneously.

Resolution offers private, semi-private, and group pilates classes with our certified pilates instructors.

Private sessions can incorporate the use of a Physical Therapist. All of our PT’s are certified pilates instructors. Pilates is a strengthening and relaxing exercise that focuses on control of the body; promoting breathing control, better posture, and muscle development in the upper torso. Pilates is great for everyone and especially those with disabilities or injuries: there’s no need to stand; it is done at a custom pace that’s right for you; it’s relaxing and stress relieving; and it’s fun. We’ll help you decide on which Pilates classes are right for you.

Private, semi-private, and reformer sessions are 45 – 55 min in duration and performed on our reformer pilates equipment. The Universal Reformer, known as the reformer, is the most popular piece of equipment and one of Joseph Pilates’s original inventions. He believed beginning exercise in the horizontal plane was important to relieve the stress and strain on the joints, and to align the body before adding additional gravitational forces through the central axis while standing, sitting or kneeling. Classically, there are more than a hundred movements created for the reformer, each dependent and built upon the other.

Mat classes are available in Darien. All of the equipment Joseph Pilates created came after the development of mat work. Sometimes we say, “the mat is the method.” Mat work is the foundation of Pilates. It includes numerous exercises of varying difficulty and progression.
