Why Pilates?

A Message from Aliyah, Owner of Pilates Center of Rockville:

I want you to know that Pilates is not a fitness trend. It is a way of creating real change in your body, health and well-being. Once you experience a lesson or class from a Pilates teacher who is a true movement specialist, then you will understand. After my first Pilates class, my body felt liberated – strong, light, loose, and free of tension and stress. With regular practice, the tightness in my shoulders from years of running began to unravel. My fallen arch from a previous foot surgery began to strengthen and lift. This isn’t magic. It’s intelligent movement. There are a lot exercise programs, but only one was designed to sculpt and condition your whole body, relieve pain and rehabilitate, improve your posture and flexibility, and relieve tension and stress – Pilates. There are so many reasons to do Pilates, but for most of us, it boils down to two things – the desire to be fit and to live pain free.

Get Fit:

  • Improve your strength and flexibility
  • Develop a strong core
  • Tone and build long, lean muscles
  • Improve your posture
  • Feel vital and a sense of well-being
  • Improve your balance and coordination
  • Increase your endurance
  • Increase body awareness and mental focus

Live Pain Free:

  • Reduce chronic pain (back, neck, nerve pain)
  • Improve chronic conditions (arthritis, sciatica, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis)
  • Rehabilitate after surgery (hip, knee, shoulder surgery)
  • Reduce tension and stress
  • Recover from injury after an accident or sports injury
  • Prevent injury
