Pilates is a system of exercises that focuses on posture, core strengthening, stretching, breathing and body mechanics. Pilates exercises were created by Joseph Pilates after WWI and has been integrated into rehabilitation since the 1920s. At Motion Pros P.T. & Pilates, we use a combination of exercises on the Reformer and Trapeze table that are specific to Pilates but tailored for the client’s specific injury or needs.
