Our method is Joseph Pilates' Contrology. Contrology is the original physical and mental conditioning method created by Joseph Pilates and his wife Clara, and passed on to us by their disciple and successor, Romana Krysanowska (of the preeminent Romana’s Pilates).

Contrology focusses on mind/body connection to balance and lengthen the body while strengthening the mind. Involving concentration, breathing, centering, and precise motion that's both fluid and controlled, Contrology expertly transforms both body and mind.

The Pilates Method

Pilates Method is a therapeutic exercise system that combines strength, stretch and control – with the most important element being control. It is a non-impact system of exercises and movements created by Joseph H. Pilates, a visionary in the field of exercise science. Pilates Method can be used to correct posture, increase concentration, help with balance, build internal and external strength, and so much more. Pilates Method is a safe and effective system that can be used by young and old, fit and out-of-shape, athletes or sedentary people. Pilates is most of all FUN! People who practice Pilates feel energized and competent, they are able to fill their lives with more joy because their bodies are healthy and their minds are free.
