BENEFITS OF CLASSICAL PILATES
What makes the Classical Pilates method unique and different from “modern Pilates” , is it’s flow and dynamics of the movements using the transitions as an exercise in weight transference between movements, connecting all movements from one to another. It emphasizes the athletic, corrective, and organic nature of the system.
In Peter Fiasca’s words, the Classical Pilates method is “the symphonic arrangement of all of our movements”. It is “the art of flow”.
Whether you are experienced in Pilates or trying it out for the first time, with consistent work on the Pilates apparatus, you will feel better and see noticeable differences in your body.
