We are focused on educating and empowering our clients, therefore:
Practice at home
Benefit from small classes
Working to develop a truly inclusive studio
At Compassionate Body Pilates we have a vision of expanding our studio clientele to reflect the diversity in our community. To work towards this goal, we are doing the following:
- reaching out to local organizations to see if private classes for diverse groups would be welcomed
- making sure we have a robust studio policy to encourage a safe space for all, and continuing to evolve and grow this policy with feedback received from diverse groups in our community
- offering an equity discount to people of colour and marginalized groups
Please contact Diane for more details.
Joseph Pilates saw the power of a calm mind, and found that conditioning his body with physical activity allowed him to remain in better overall health and mental wellness. Wanting to share what he learned with others, in the early 1930’s he began developing his unique brand of physical activity, a form he would later name ‘Contrology’.
This exercise method has now developed and been adapted to reflect modern scientific understanding of movement as well as the continual changing needs of the human body as we adapt to modern habits. Many of his original observations and exercises are still very relevant today and are incorporated in contemporary practice. He introduced the following principles to his exercise system.
