Vital whole body health, from the inside out

Experience the fundamentals

Pilates is a system of mind-body exercise developed over 100 years ago in Germany by Joseph H. Pilates. It is a method of total body conditioning which strengthens and stretches muscles while enhancing coordination and awareness. Emphasizing core strength and stability, movements flow outward from the center of the body, creating balanced, strong, well-aligned bodies.

Experience the mind-body union

“It is the mind itself which shapes the body” (J. Pilates). Exercises emphasize breath, flow, proper alignment and core strength. Quality of movement is of utmost importance. When performing movements mindfully and correctly, not only will grace, ease, and efficiency develop, but also the entire mind-body system will feel light, lifted and energized.

Experience the vitality

“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit” (J. Pilates). Pilates exercises are practiced on the floor (Mat) or with specialized spring-loaded equipment (Reformer, Wall Unit, Chair). Align Davis is founded upon the rich history, skill, and wisdom of Pilates’ legacy.
