What is a PUH-LAH-TEEZ?
Pilates -- What is it? What does it do? Why should I care?

If you've ever ...

-- glanced at a magazine,
-- participated in a group fitness class,
-- seen a physical therapist, chiropractor, or orthopedist,
-- discussed your back pain with any audience,
-- followed the career of professional athlete,
-- or chatted with your annoyingly chipper and super fit neighbor or colleague,

... you've probably heard the word "Pilates" and wondered ... What the heck is that?

Gold Line Pilates is here to solve the mystery! The short answer ... 1) no, it's not just stretching or a bunch of sit-ups and crunches, and 2) yes, it's for all ages, fitness levels, body types, and body issues.

In this workshop, you will learn:
-- The definition, underlying principles, and origination and evolution of the movement system referred to as Pilates.
-- The relevance of core strength as it relates to movement, posture, and general health and wellness.
-- The importance of the muscles meant to support the spine in an upright position.
-- The benefits of a regular Pilates practice as it pertains to preventive, rehabilitative, complementary, and standalone fitness and wellness.
-- The shortcomings of traditional exercise theories and systems in the context of core strength, pain, and progressive degeneration.
