Customized Resistance Training for Every Body.
In our daily lives, we tend to be habitual in the way we use our bodies - sitting at the computer, driving the car, even sleeping. Many of us become off-balance which can eventually lead to discomfort.
At Novato Pilates, we strive to restore balance and strength as you move. Whether you use your body a lot, or would like to use it more, we are here to help. We create a unique exercise and stretching program just for you based on an initial physical assessment and conversation. We offer private instruction and small group classes on the mat and reformer. We have a variety of certified trainers and classes to choose from. Our trainers are ready to help you post-surgically for shoulders, knees, and hips, and are also skilled with working with chronic pain.
We invite you to come be a part of our supportive community, some of whom have been coming here for over 12 years!
To our health!
Rose and Gretchen
Pilates is a blend of strength and flexibility exercises that engages the mind and conditions the entire body.
Pilates is a balanced approach to exercise in which no muscle group or joint is overworked, and your body develops the means to move as an efficient, holistic system in sport and in daily life.
Pilates serves as the foundation for other activities in life by training those elusive core muscles found deep in the pelvis and trunk.
Pilates is an effective way to improve the poor posture and improves your balance, coordination and alignment.
Pilates is for every body and is a gentle and safe way to reintroduce your body to movement after a long break from exercise, after an illness or surgery, or if you suffer from chronic pain or stiffness.
Currently, the medical community manages scoliosis through observation, bracing, and surgery. When adding exercise to your regimen of scoliosis care, it is important to exercise in three dimensions because the scoliosis spine does not just curve to the right and left as it appears on an x-ray—it also twists and turns up, down, forward, and back. We offer exercises to lengthen your spine and remodel your muscles and connective tissues to hold your spine in a more neutral alignment. During your private sessions, we will work on elongation, breathing techniques, aligning the spine towards neutral, strengthening within neutral, and connective tissue stabilization. All exercises are tailored to your specific curves, so a recent x-ray of your spine and pelvis is helpful (but not required).
Please call or email us to set up a consultation to discuss your specific situation.
