Learn how to move with intention
Pilates and Biomechanics are a fantastic mix to get your body connected. Pilates focuses on core control and working from your centre whereas the Biomechanical training elements are going to get your joints moving optimally.

What is Pilates & Biomechanics
Pilates is a movement system based around Concentration, Control, Centre, Flow, Precision and Breathing. Focus is paid towards alignment for strengthening and lengthening exercises and inward attention is required to fully understand the muscular initiation and to 'feel' what you are doing. That way, imbalances can be worked on throughout the body. You will learn how to move better and more efficiently, lessening your risk of future injury and improving your movement mechanics and proprioception.
Joe had a famous quote for how often you should do Pilates, "You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions and have a whole new body in 30 sessions."
Applying Biomechanics is the foundation for good technique in sports and for moving optimally. Therefore, by studying how the human body naturally wants to move, we can remove stress and pressure from the bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments often offering long term pain management or solutions by formulating a plan from a set of movement tests. From these tests we can measure progress. For the best results homework between sessions will be essential.
