Since 1993, Body Awareness Studio has been serving Atlanta students with the industry’s most established Pilates professionals.
The Private Pilates sessions at Body Awareness Studio offer a unique and highly effective fitness approach. The Balanced Body apparatus used in the Pilates method utilizes multiple springs, rather than weights, to create resistance. The movement is slow and rhythmic, with the conscious focus on using correct breathing and physical movement to develop the inner core muscles as well as the outer global muscles. Pilates exercises are known for helping people reconnect to their body after injury, fine tune their sports, correct inefficient movement patterns, activate core muscles which is the best known remedy for healing Back Pain! Emphasis on eccentric muscle contractions creates long, flexible muscles. Controlled, thoughtful movement reduces the effects of stress on the body and the mind. The rewards of moving properly help reduce stress on the nervous system and all body systems. The benefits can felt in all aspects of daily living.
Benefits of practicing Pilates:
- Excellent posture
- Retraining poor movement quality
- Deep core strength
- Better breathing
- Increased energy
- Clear mental focus
- Appearance of longer leaner muscles
- Uplifting your mood
