About Pilates Balance In Motion
What is Pilates?
Pilates is an innovative mind-body exercise developed by Joseph Pilates over 90 years ago that continues to evolve. The Pilates Method strengthens the deep abdominal muscles, along with the muscles closest to the spine. Control of the core is achieved by integrating the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle. Utilizing specially designed spring loaded equipment and performing the Mat work series, the Pilates repertoire addresses muscular and structural imbalances by promoting healthy spine and joint alignment. This in turn creates a more fluid, dynamic and efficient movement of the body.

Pilates with Christina has enabled me to ease into my senior years with the strength and confidence to remain active and enjoy the challenging activities the Colorado high country offers. Her small classes afford lots of individual attention and gentle prodding to be the best we can be. It is the best gift I give myself.
