Pilates Apparatus Training offered at In Balance Pilates Studio, Wilmington

Training on the apparatus encourages the development of deep abdominal strength, while simultaneously working the rest of the body as it emanates from the central powerhouse. Through consistent practice on the apparatus, clients will develop endurance, balance and core stabilization, strength, and flexibility. The results are not only physical however, as a true, classical Pilates routine teaches clients how to build a “mind-body” connection that brings more focused awareness to their movements.
