Pilates focuses on training the mind and body to work together towards overall fitness. Most traditional exercise programs focus only on strengthening the large muscle groups, ignoring the deeper and smaller stabilizing muscles. Pilates strengthens the core trunk muscles from the inside out. Through controlled and concentrated movements centered with breath awareness and dynamic spinal and abdominal stabilization, Pilates helps develop proper postural alignment along with more uniform and longer, leaner muscles.
|Fantastic experiences! A longtime Pilates enthusiast and fitness class goer, I just moved to the area and have found the perfect environment and support with Westford Pilates. Professional and inviting, the classes are sure to focus on the subtle and not so subtle techniques of Pilates in a mind clearing, focused, and all out pleasant humor. The instructor is great about providing well timed cues, describing forms, and gently and discreetly correcting positions when needed. Themed classes are also offered mixing in stretching, toning, core, yoga, and classic props like circle or my new BF, the orange ball. After trying a couple individual times, I bought a pack of classes. All very reasonably priced!|

|After 50 years of intermittent back problems, and finding most new exercises causes problems, I was scared to start Pilates. Thank goodness I did. Chris was so helpful, monitoring me closely even in a group lesson and suggesting modifications to suit me. A couple of years later, I am in much better shape, feel stronger and have a more resilient back.|
|Last year I trained for a half marathon with severe knee pain and could never run back to back days. I've tried everything PT, acupuncture & massage. They have all helped some to keep me running, but Pilates is what has really changed my running life. I read multiple articles about yoga & Pilates for running and thought I would give it a try. Last fall I met Chris and as a runner herself she really understood how to help me become a stronger runner. Since I started doing Pilates with Chris I have been able to run back to back days with no pain. Without Pilates I would never have been able to PR (get a personal record in)a half marathon - thank you!!|
