Pilates is a form of strength training focusing on core strength, and restoring the body back to its neutral placement and alignment. Here at Healthworks we offer a contemporary approach to Pilates by following the STOTT PILATES method along with other leading Pilates Methods. While working closely with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine, and fitness professionals STOTT PILATES has been able to keep the method current with the medical and fitness world, and has come to be recognized as one of the safest and most effective methods available.  At Healthworks we’re able to offer a program tailored to your individual need, using equipment such as the Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, Mats and the use of small props. We also specialize in pre/post natal, back pain, hip and knee injures, osteoporosis management, scoliosis management, athletic improvement, and more.
