Similar to Pilates core exercises, we build strong, flexible, and effective muscles by utilizing a variety of exercises. Not only are we engaging our abdominal muscles, we work our back extensors and postural muscles, creating functional strength in the core. Functional strength means you can be more physically efficient in your daily activities, and less likely to injure yourself. You will often hear clients say they "feel taller" because we work the front, back, and sides of the body.

Much like Pilates, core exercises use a variety of exercises that work the core in different ways from different angles to improve the muscles involved in flexion, extension and rotation of the spine to help create a strong functional core.
