About Sunni and Studio S Pilates

Studio S Pilates is a private, boutique, classical Pilates studio. There is only 1 kind of Pilates....the kind that came from Joe and Clara Pilates. There are other varieties out there, fusions and combinations and exercises done on Pilates apparatus, so the word PIlates is thrown about a bit, but here at Studio S Pilates the classical version is taught on classical apparatus. 

Dispelling the myths:
Pilates isn't yoga, or a spa treatment, it isn't just for women, Joe Pilates was a cigar smoking boxer, he designed his workout primarily for men, but women loved it too. Pilates isn't just for dancers, plenty of athletes use Pilates to cross train and become more proficient in their chosen sport. Pilates is a workout. It will make you strong where you are weak, stretch you where you are stiff and balance all sides of your body including the insides. With Pilates we don't concentrate on one muscle group over another, every exercise done correctly with intention will address every body part. 

In times of injury, Pilates differs from physical therapy in that in PT, you work only the injured part, in Pilates we allow the injured part to heal while we keep the rest of the body strong and stretched, until the injury has healed enough to add it back in. Pilates can be done daily, there is no lactic acid build up, yes, you may feel sore. No, you won't be crippled by your workout. In Pilates we don't do endless sets of mindless repetitions, we do a maximum of 10 reps and move on, hitting the body from every angle. 

There are over 500 exercises in the Pilates repertoire on various pieces of apparatus designed especially to work the body correctly, with optimum alignment to allow the exerciser to achieve their personal goals. In Pilates we work toes to nose, nothing is left out. As in the phrase peeling the layers away from the onion, in Pilates we build the onion, 1 layer of muscle fiber at a time until optimum strength and divine flexibility are achieved and maintained with a consistent practice. 
Pilates is a resistance based exercise system utilizing springs of varying tension and size to correctly work with the body you have and assist you in achieving the body you want. 

Joseph Pilates made the promise that with consistently practicing his system, you will feel a difference in 10 sessions, see a difference in 20 sessions, and others will notice your transformation in 30 sessions. You are as young as your spine, an inflexible body at 30 is older than a flexible body at 80. 

Move with more ease, stand taller, rid yourself of back and hip pain, eliminate the forward head posture from living on the computer and the swayback from slumping. Feel better inside your own skin. Play with the kids instead of sitting it out, bend down and get up without struggling. 
Pilates can be done well into old age, it is great for those suffering with challenges like MS, RA, Fibromyalgia. Pilates can be as gentle as it can be intense, it all depends on the goals of the person walking through the door. Pilates is about you.
