Pilates is a unique method of body conditioning named after German-born Joseph H. Pilates.

The Pilates method is a physical movement program designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body without adding bulk. Pilates exercises focuses on postural symmetry, abdominal strength, breath control, spine, pelvic and shoulder stabilization, muscular flexibility, joint mobility and strengthening through the complete range of motion of all joints. Instead of isolating muscles groups, the whole body is trained. Pilates can help dramatically change your body and the way you think through your every day movements.

Treat yourself well, whether you live here or are visiting our beautiful island, Pilates will enhance your life and your attitude towards living.

Group classes, private instruction and in-villa services are available. More information
