Six principles guide Pilates’ workouts at Club Pilates Wellness Center: Breath, safe head and neck movement, abdominal engagement, shoulder stability, independent movement of the legs and pelvis, and use of the pelvic floor -- all of which add up to stronger bodies, better posture, cleaner movement and deeper connection between the body and the mind.

It is a highly durable, tactile, and pleasantly natural surface to practice on -- and might remind you of walking barefoot on the earth.
