Each year on the first Saturday in May, the Pilates Method Alliance® (PMA®) celebrates Pilates Day.
Pilates Day was created by the PMA to promote awareness of the many benefits that Pilates Method brings to every age group, and to promote healthy living. Tri-City Wellness & Fitness Center Pilates program invites the community to a complimentary “Pilates Essentials: Starting on the Mat” event to experience the foundations and basic exercises of the Pilates Method.
Pilates is a method of total body conditioning designed to build core strength and balance the musculoskeletal system. Created by Joseph H. Pilates in the early 20th century, this method combines specific breathing techniques with strength and flexibility exercises. Pilates targets the deep abdominal and spinal muscles and leaves you feeling lengthened, strong and centered.
